Based on the 2001 hit movie from France, Amelie, brings original music and distinctive whimsy to the Walter Kerr Theater. (“Hoping to see you/ In Macchu Picchu” is one tickling lyric. What’s not to love?) Characters may don fish heads and in one incredibly silly bit, an Elton John sequined suit, but it’s all to Amelie’s happy theme: love conquers even acute cases of fear of closeness to others. And if this musical’s Paris looks familiar, look to the bridge, reminiscent of the children’s classic, “Linnea in Monet’s Garden” for inspiration. Best of all, Amelie is played by Phillipa Soo, Hamilton’s original Eliza; for the 100 minute, no intermission duration of this show, you are in great company.
