This show is now closed.
Paris, 1950 – a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil (Gary Tushaw), 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 (Anna O’Byrne) and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.
A musical fantasy about daring to dream and the power of self-belief.
Staring Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil and Anna O'Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle as well as Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, Isabelle's controlling husband.
The cast is completed by Elissa Churchill (Elephant Steps), Claire Machin (Memphis), Keith Ramsay (The Cereal Café), Steven Serlin (The Wild Party), Alistair So (The King and I), Daniel Stockton (Guys and Dolls) with understudies Laura Barnard and Jack Reitman.

Lovely small musical with a fun variant on the mousy man who braves the world for love.

I’m sad to report AMOUR, London’s cutest musical, closed early, last weekend.
Its sugary-sweet love story sent everyone home from the Charing Cross Theatre with a smile on their face and a spring in their step.Why the Closure of Musical Amour is Bad News for us All
