Broadway musical Amelie, based on the 2001 French film, will have its Irish premiere run at The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin from May 28 to June 1.
Originally starring Audrey Tautou and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the French romantic-comedy told 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, the titular character 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 raves. The Los Angeles Times called it an ‘enchanting act of theatrical reinvention’. French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson (Hereafter, WE) stars alongside West End performer, Strictly Come Dancing favourite and television actor Danny Mac.
The show will run Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm with matinee shows on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets are on sale now via the Gaiety website. They cost from €21.
