Not too much more to say about Amélie the Musical, now in London at The Other Palace, other than book now for un moment merveilleux.
As sweet-sharp as a diabolo grenadine, Amélie the Musical has lost none of its inimitable charm as it gears up for a considerable UK tour.
The Young Visiters (yes, that’s the correct spelling) was written by Daisy Ashford in 1890, when she was just nine years old, then put in a drawer and forgotten about. Years later, it was discovered and published in 1919 – complete with spelling mistakes – with a foreword by J.M. Barrie. The book went on to be so successful that many people suspected Barrie had written it himself, a claim he always denied.
