Amelie, based on the whimsical Oscar-winning French film with the same name, follows the journey of a lonely, quirky French waitress who decides to act as a secret wish-fulfiller to the people who live around her.
Tony-nominee Phillipa Soo, who made her Bway debut playing Eliza Schuyler in Hamilton, will play Amelie. Soo's first big role in NY was in the acclaimed off-Bway pop opera The Great Comet of 1812.
The show will be directed by Tony-winner Pam MacKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) and features a book by Craig Lucas (An American in Paris).
