"Amour is a lovely night at the theater." - PerformInk
“Charming, perfectly sweet, entertaining and whimsical, [Amour] is pure Summer Magic.” - Chicago Theatre Review
“Amour, playing at the Atheneaum, is a jewel box of a show. This lighthearted musical...is profoundly entertaining, without needing to be profound. It is just plain fun.” - Buzz News Chicago
The charming musical AMOUR opens September 3rd at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N Southport, Chicago.
Adapted from the short story “Le Passe-Muraille” by beloved French author Marcel Aymé, AMOUR tells the story of Dusoleil, a shy clerk working in a dreary office in post-World War II Paris. One day he discovers he has the ability to walk through walls, and embraces a life of romance and adventure.
With music by multiple Oscar and Grammy Award-winner Michel Legrand and adapted into English by Jeremy Sams from the French Libretto by Didier van Cauwelaert, AMOUR was nominated for multiple Tony awards when it played on Broadway in 2002.
AMOUR will feature Brian Fimoff as Dusoleil and Emily Goldberg as Isabelle with an ensemble including Scott Gryder, Matt McNabb, Mikaela Sullivan, Tommy Thurston, Kevin Webb, Missy Wise and Greg Zawada.
Directed by Ed Rutherford with Music Direction by Nick Sula and Choreography by Derek Van Barham.
