About the Show/Event
Information for Amour at Charing Cross Theatre, Inner London (Musical). 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. Adapted from the 1943 short story Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Ayme, Amour opened on Broadway in 2002 and was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
