Synopsis: 

Amélie follows the journey of the inquisitive and shy Amélie 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 realizes that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Amélie

    ‘Amélie’ Is Easy to Listen To, but Never Really Sings

    Ben Brantley

    April 3, 2017: For a cunning little bauble of an entertainment, the 2001 French film “Amélie” inspired uncommonly extreme responses. People were usually head over heels about it (“It’s so cute!”) or violently allergic to it (“But it’s so cute!”).

    TimeOut Review Of Amélie

    David Cote

    April 3, 2017: “Times are hard for dreamers” sings Amélie Poulain (Phillipa Soo) in the new musical that bears her name, but the lyrics aren’t strictly true. During the intermission-free hour and 45 minutes of this promising but never delivering musical fantasy, you can easily (and frequently) dream up ways the creative team might have better turned the 2001 film into a stage event that didn’t cloy and harden into static quirk halfway through.

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Amélie

    Despite a great cast, musical gets lost in translation to stage

    Matt Windman

    April 3, 2017: Two years since “Hamilton” premiered off-Broadway, many of its original stars have left the stage behind (at least for now) to try their luck in movies, television and music. Not so for Phillipa Soo, who originally played Eliza Hamilton.

  • TELEGRAPH REVIEW OF Amélie

    This Broadway translation of the French hit film lacks the original's je ne sais quoi

    Diane Snyder

    April 3, 2017: “Times are hard for dreamers,” sings Amélie Poulain, as she leaves behind her solitary childhood for Paris in the quirky, occasionally charming new Broadway tuner based on the 2001 French comedy. Times aren’t so easy for those who dare to musicalize great movies, either, especially when they show excessive fidelity to the source. Despite plenty of talent onstage and off, Amélie, A New Musical is a series of playful moments that don’t add up to a memorable musical.

  • DEADLINE REVIEW OF Amélie

    ‘Hamilton’s Phillipa Soo Leads A Sweet, Tuneful ‘Amélie’

    Jeremy Gerard

    April 3, 2017: Amélie, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s good-natured 2001 film, was produced for an estimated $10.7 million and has grossed $132 million to date. That’s not bad for a sentimental fantasy about a painfully shy young woman – the film made an indie star of Audrey Tatou – who is inspired after the death of Princess Diana to spread anonymous good cheer to her Paris acquaintances.
