AMÉLIE first captured our hearts in the five-time Academy Award®-nominated film. Now audiences can be swept away again with this new musical that follows the magical and mesmerizing journey of this inquisitive and charmingly shy young woman who turns the streets of Montmartre into a world of her own imagining, while secretly orchestrating moments of joy for those around her. After discovering a mysterious photo album and meeting a handsome stranger, Amélie learns that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.
AMÉLIE, A NEW MUSICAL is set for Broadway in 2017, following the world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre—which topped the Best Theatre of 2015 lists in the San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times—and a run at Center Theatre Group’s Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles this winter.
