Amelie - 2017 - Broadway History , Info & More

Walter Kerr Theatre (Broadway)
219 West 48th St. New York, NY

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).

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Amelie

Broadway Review: ‘Hamilton’s Phillipa Soo Leads A Sweet, Tuneful ‘Amélie’
8 / 10

I had the luxury of seeing Amélie twice, and I admit to finding its charms more readily revealed on second viewing, The score, for one thing, is more sophisticated than a single hearing suggests, and perhaps more cunning: There are what struck me as Sondheim Sunday In The Park in-jokes when the score turns to the knowing painter (played with lovely humanity by Tony Sheldon). And there is delicacy in the love story of Amélie and the young man (Adam Chanler-Berat) with the curious hobby.

Amélie, A New Musical review: this Broadway translation of the French hit film lacks the original's je ne sais quoi
6 / 10

'Times are hard for dreamers,' sings Amélie Poulain, as she leaves behind her solitary childhood for Paris in the quirky, occasionally charming new Broadway tuner based on the 2001 French comedy. Times aren't so easy for those who dare to musicalize great movies, either, especially when they show excessive fidelity to the source. Despite plenty of talent onstage and off, Amélie, A New Musical is a series of playful moments that don't add up to a memorable musical.

BWW Review: Pam MacKinnon and Phillipa Soo Make AMELIE Flippantly Free-Spirited Fun
by Michael Dale - April 5, 2017


"Bursting with joy" isn't exactly a phrase commonly used to describe the exceptional directorial work of Pam MacKinnon. The woman who guided the premiere of Bruce Norris' tensely comic CLYBOURNE PARK and gobsmacked audiences with a freshly destructive vision of Edward Albee's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? is better known for drawing out dramatic shades than working with whimsy.
