Amélie The Musical
Whether you’re passionate about the French film or have not seen it yet, you can not miss this impressive Broadway Musical that now comes to Ireland.
To put you in context, Amélie is a young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She improvises small acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. However, when she falls in love, Amélie realizes that to find her own satisfaction she will have to risk and say what is in her heart.
When: Tuesday 28th May – Saturday 1st June 2019
Where: The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin 2, Ireland
