VIDEO: Phillipa Soo & Cast of AMELIE Perform Medley of Songs on 'Today'
Tony nominee Phillipa Soo and the cast of the new Broadway musical Amelie stopped by this morning's 'Today' as part of the morning show's 'Best of Broadway Week'. "I loved the movie," Soo told NBC's Savanna Guthrie, "and I'm just so grateful to be able to play this part that I loved growing up." Below, watch the cast perform a medley of 'Times Are Hard for Dreamers' and 'Tour De France.'
Tony nominee Phillipa Soo returns to Broadway in Amelie, a new musical based on the beloved five-time Oscar-nominated film, and "an enchanting act of theatrical reinvention" (The Los Angeles Times). Amelie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small, but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amelie realizes that to find happiness she'll have to risk everything and say what's in her heart. Come be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection and sees possibility around every corner. In these uncertain times, Amelie is someone to believe in.
Directed by Tony winner Pam Mackinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), with a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony nominee Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza) and an original score by Daniel Messe and Nathan Tysen, Amelie "proves that the world is better when we're all in it together" (Paste Magazine).
