    Amour has just opened at the Charing Cross Theatre to rave reviews! 'Genuinely enchanting' and 'utterly gorgeous' (Time Out), Hannah Chissick's 'delightful' (Broadway World), 'decadent' (Attitude) and 'irresistibly charming' (The Stage) production tells the miraculous tale of a shy, unassuming civil servant who dares to dream. A brilliantly witty and deliciously surreal musical fantasy about the power of self-belief. Catch Amour while you can!

    Paris, 1950 - a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil, lives alone and works diligently in a dreary office. To pass the time, he writes letters to his mother and daydreams about the beautiful Isabelle, who is kept locked away by her controlling husband.

    When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor to right the wrongs of his war-impoverished Parisian neighbours, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.

    Amour stars Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil, Anna O'Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle and Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, alongside Elissa Churchill (Elephant Steps), Claire Machin (Memphis), Keith Ramsay (The Cereal Cafe), Steven Serlin (The Wild Party), Alistair So (The King And I) and Daniel Stockton (Les Miserables), with understudies Jack Reitman (Thrill Me) and Laura Barnard.
