Phillips Soo To Leave Hamilton To Star in Amelie

Tony Award nominee Phillipa Soo announced she was leaving Hamilton and leaving people to wonder why she wasn’t reprising her role in Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet. Now we know Ms. Soo will play the title role in the Broadway premiere of Amelie, a New Musical. The show was done in Berkley with Samantha Barks. It will  play at the Ahmanson Theatre December 4, 2016, through January 15, 2017 and then head to Broadway for this up coming season.

Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Clybourne Park), will direct. The book is by three-time Tony Award nominee Craig Lucas (An American in Paris), music byDaniel Messé (Hem), lyrics by Nathan Tysen (The Burnt Part Boys, Tuck Everlasting) and Daniel Messé, and musical staging and choreography by Sam Pinkleton.

Phillipa Soo originated the role Amélie in the workshop productions. Her voice will be heard in the new Disney production of Moana.

The musical follows the mesmerizing journey of the inquisitive and charmingly shy Amélie who turns the streets of Montmartre into a world of her own imagining, while secretly orchestrating moments of joy for those around her. After discovering a mysterious photo album and meeting a handsome stranger, Amélie realizes that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.

At Berkley Adam Chanler-Berat and Tony Sheldon also stared.
