Amour Tickets

Paris, 1950 – a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil (Gary Tushaw), lives alone and works diligently in a dreary office. To pass the time, he writes letters to his mother and daydreams about the beautiful Isabelle, who is kept locked away by her controlling husband. When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor to right the wrongs of his war-impoverished Parisian neighbours, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle (Anna O’Byrne) and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.

A musical fantasy about daring to dream and the power of self-belief.

Our Amour Review

I'm going out on a limb here with my five-star rating for the UK premiere of Michel Legrand and Jeremy Sams's wistful, witty Amour (all-too-briefly seen on Broadway in 2002), as I'm certain that for others it will be a show they can't bear.
