Amélie

A CONCORD THEATRICALS TITLE

Amélie

Book by Craig Lucas / Music by Daniel Messé / Lyrics by Nathan Tysen & Daniel Messé

Based on the motion picture Amélie written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Guillaume Laurant

Amélie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small, but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy and mayhem. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection and sees possibility around every corner.
