Amelie

Director Michael Fentiman stopped by THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST for a conversation about how he revitalized Amelie from its original Broadway version for a UK premiere. In a "mad" whirlwind three months of collaboration with songwriters Daniel Messe and Nathan Tysen, Fentiman made significant changes to the musical to open a new Amelie at the Watermill Theatre, leading to Olivier nominations and even a Grammy-nominated album.

With Amelie now in its second month at the Criterion Theatre in the UK and a new cast album widely available since last summer, the quirky musical is establishing itself as a fan-favorite.

THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST host Sally Fuller concluded her third season by sitting down with Fentiman for an in-depth episode of the musical theatre podcast. Listen to a preview of the episode entitled "#37: When the Booth Goes Bright - Interview with Michael Fentiman" below and stream it on all podcast streaming platforms.
