Producer Danielle Tarento has announced full casting for the anticipated UK professional premiere of the Tony Award-nominated musical fantasy, Amour, which will run at London’s Charing Cross Theatre from Thursday 2 May to Saturday 20 July 2019.
Directed by Hannah Chissick and choreographed by Matt Cole, the production will star Gary Tushaw as Dusoleil, Anna O’Byrne as Isabelle, and Alasdair Harvey as the Prosecutor, Isabelle’s controlling husband, alongside Elissa Churchill, Claire Machin, Keith Ramsay, Steven Serlin, Alistair So, and Daniel Stockton, and understudies, Laura Barnard and Jack Reitman.
Amour has music by Michel Legrand and English lyrics by Jeremy Sams, adapted from the original French lyrics by Didier Van Cauwelaert.
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.
The creative team will also include: Production Designer Adrian Gee, Lighting Designer Rob Halliday, Sound Designer Andrew Johnson, and Musical Director Jordan Li-Smith.
