Amélie The Musical to transfer to the West End's Other Palace this Christmas
Smash-hit musical Amélie has got that je ne sais quoi and the West End knows it. LW Theatres officially announces today that after it bids adieu to its nationwide tour across the UK, Amélie The Musical will head to The Other Palace on 29 November 2019 just in time for the holidays. The new London production, which comes after a sell-out premiere at the Newbury Watermill, will run at London's Other Palace through the New Year until 1 February 2020.
What is Amélie The Musical about?
Based on the five-time Oscar®-nominated film written by Guillaume Laurant and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Alien Resurrection, The City of Lost Children), which raked in $174.2 million in worldwide box office receipts on just a $10 million budget, the story follows Amélie Poulain, an eccentric jeune femme who seems like a quiet girl on the outside but lives a loud life on the inside.
An altruist on the down low, she secretly performs wonderful acts of generosity that make the people all around her happy and brighten up their days. But when love comes knocking on Amélie's door, she realises that if she wants to find her own state of happiness, she must be willing to risk it all and say what's on her mind and deep within her heart. Even though times are tough for believers, Amélie is someone worth counting on...
