Our Review 4 / 5

Times are hard for dreamers but Amélie is someone to believe in.

Following a critically acclaimed and sell-out tour in 2019, a Grammy nomination and 3 Olivier Award nominations, Amélie The Musical arrives in the heart of the West End at the Criterion Theatre from May 2021. The much loved five – time Oscar -nominated film is brought to life by a cast of astonishingly talented actor-musicians and set to a critically acclaimed re-orchestrated score.

Amélie, played by the delightful, Olivier Award nominated Audrey Brisson secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness discovering the possibilities around every corner and bringing happiness to those she encounters. When a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart.

Experience this beautiful story and be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who discovers her voice, uncovers the power of human connection and sees possibility around every corner.

Our Review of Amelie


I saw the original short-lived production of Amélie, a musical version of the 2001 French film, when it premiered on Broadway in 2017 - and ran for just seven weeks. The review I wrote at the time described it as telling "a tenderly-drawn, small story, but it feels out of place amid the bombard and bigger effects that Broadway usually trades in"; it was "sweet and full of charm but it makes no lasting impression."
