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!

Great singing, Quirky, Must see, Masterful, Enchanting

See it if Exquisite! Actor musicians are magical performers, the folky tunes had me all fuzzy inside, very clever but minimal set, vocals to DIE for.

Don't see it if Not much movement and mainly focussed on the music but not a convert in any shape or form. Read more

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...

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.

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.

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 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.
