That's right theatre fans. Amélie is heading to the Great White Way. The show, which is based on the 2001 French film, will begin previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre on March 9, 2017, with opening night scheduled for April 3. Starring in the title role is recent Tony nominee Phillipa Soo (Hamilton).
Prior to it's Broadway premier, the show is scheduled to play at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles from December 4-January 15. So what is the show all about? Well according to the show's creative team, Amélie "follows the whimsical and charming existence of Amélie, a lonely French waitress who decides to act as a secret wish-fulfiller to the people who live around her."
Now while I never got the chance to see Ms. Soo when she was in Hamilton, I did see here a few years ago when she was in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. She was fantastic. I smell another Tony nomination in her future. Tickets for the show are not on sale yet. However you can bet that when they do, we will be selling them. Get your tickets to see Amélie on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
