Broadway musical Amelie, based on the 2001 French film, will have its Irish premiere at The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin May 28 to June 1, 2019.
Starring Audrey Tautou and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the French romantic-comedy tells the story of Amelie, a twenty-something woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her.
However, when a chance at love comes her way, Amelie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart.
Based on the much loved five-time Oscar-nominated film, the new musical has earned rave reviews with The Los Angeles Times calling it an ‘enchanting act of theatrical reinvention’.
The show will run Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm with matinee shows on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (November 16). They cost €21.
