Charing Cross Theatre has assembled its cast for the upcoming U.K. professional debut of Amour. The musical, penned by the late Michel Legrand, is set to begin May 2 at the London venue ahead of a May 8 official opening. Leading the company will be Gary Tushaw (Charing Cross’ Ragtime) as Dusoleil and Anna O’Byrne (The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies) as Isabelle.

Joining them are Alasdair Harvey (Sunday in the Park With George) as the Prosecutor, along with Elissa Churchill, Claire Machin, Keith Ramsay, Steven Serlin, Alistair So, and Daniel Stockton, plus understudies Laura Barnard and Jack Reitman.

Inspired by Marcel Aymé’s short story Le Passe-Muraille and featuring English lyrics by Jeremy Sams, the musical follows a civil servant who, upon learning he can walk through walls, leads a double life as a Robin Hood-esque figure and sets out to woo Isabelle, who is locked away by her controlling husband.

The production, under the direction of Hannah Chissick, will feature choreography by Matt Cole, sets and costumes by Adrian Gee, lighting design by Rob Halliday, and sound design by Andrew Johnson. Jordan Li-Smith serves as music director.

Performances are scheduled through July 20.
