Why See Amelie, A New Musical?

Pre-Broadway Engagment

The Ahmanson welcomes the Broadway-bound Amelie, A New Musical, for a strictly limited engagement this December. Adapted from the classic movie by French auteur Jean-Pierre Jeunet, this charming new show revolves around the crushingly shy Parisian waitress Amelie Poulain, who makes it her mission to bring happiness to those her around by secretly arranging little moments of pleasure in their lives.

Amelie the movie captivated audiences worldwide, and with an all star creative team including Tony-winning director Pam McKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf), this musical adaptation looks set to do the same. Leading the cast as the eponymous heroine is Phillipa Soo, who recently wowed Broadway audiences with her star turn in Hamilton, for which she received a Tony nomination.

What is Amelie About?

From a very young age, Amelie has lived in a different world. The child of rather too overprotective parents, Amelie has escaped her loneliness and social akwardness by creating an imaginary realm of fantasy. When she leaves home to become a waitress, her fantasies are projected onto the streets of Paris, as she sets about touching peoples lives with her sweet, but sometimes misguided schemes. One day she discovers a mysterious photo album and the resulting adventure changes her life forever!
