With music by Michel Legrand and a libretto by Didier van Cauwelaert, Amour is adapted from Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Aymé and features an English adaptation by Jeremy Sams. The musical concerns Dusoleil, a civil servant and dreamer who discovers that he can walk through walls, which allows him to give bread and jewels to the bourgeoisie. As he gains confidence to win over Isabelle from her unhappy marriage, Dusoleil’s magical approach to life makes the world better for his co-workers and other Parisian locals.
Amour debuted on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in 2002 and was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. The original cast featured Malcolm Gets, Melissa Errico, and Norm Lewis.
