Based on a French short story by Marcel Ayme, Legrand's Amour is set in post World War II Paris and concerns the life of Dusoleil (Gets), a civil servant who discovers he has the ability to walk through walls. With this strange new power, he discovers the secret lives of his neighbors along with a romance of his own (with Melissa Errico). The French version, Le Passe Muraille, won the Prix Moliere for Best Musical in 1997, the equivalent of the Tony Award. Amour opened at the Music Box Theatre Oct. 20.
