Funny, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if A little sugary but very enjoyable evening. Audrey Brisson was perfectly cast. Cast was wonderfully talented. Wish it would tour the US!

Don't see it if you need something deep. This is just light but fun.

Great staging, Funny, Enchanting

See it if you want to see a charming musical from a cast who play their own instruments on stage, a lovely recreation of a classic film.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see the version that opened on Broadway featuring Pippa Soo, as there are several musical changes and differences!

Masterful, Quirky, Delightful, Clever

See it if You want something different and not too much going on, the musicians were also playing characters and with a smaller cast it works well.

Don't see it if Your expecting a big show with lots of numbers, this is a small production with a small cast and is very low key.

Romantic, Hilarious, Great writing, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you love actor musicianship carried out to the highest degree of perfection. Topped with a romantic story laced with comedy gold.

Don't see it if you hate great pieces of musical theatre, or french people.

The Telegraph (UK)
June 15th, 2021

Nonetheless, much as I admire Amélie’s boho ensemble ethos, its undeniable physical zest, and the company’s determination (assisted by help from the Culture Recovery Fund) to open in the West End at this critical time, I wasn’t quite as bouleversé as I expected.

If you are nervously venturing back into the West End and looking for something that illustrates the profound imaginative power of theatre, you really couldn’t do better than choose this bittersweet 1990s tale...

Still, there’s no faulting the musical’s attempt to kindle a bit of happiness, a dollop of romance and a whole heap of joie de vivre.

It may not be a great musical, or even a very coherent one, but Amélie is undeniably successful as a fanciful Valentine to the City of Light, and, in this iteration, as a celebration of the unbeatable power of live music.

London Theatre

At its highs, Amélie is very high indeed. It is a shame that there is a frankly unforgivable level of racial homogeneity in the cast...and Lucas has seemingly sidestepped the opportunity to update some of the more questionable aspects of this 20 year old film.

The Guardian (UK)

The show could be tighter and lighter, the music a bit more Gallic, but its unabashed bid to bring joy, promote everyday kindness and rekindle hope couldn’t be more pertinent.
