Broadway actress Phillipa Soo of the Great White Way's hip-hop hit, 'Hamilton,' will assume the lead role in 'Amélie' next spring. The musical is based on the 2001 French romantic comedy film of the same name from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

And with the world's best musicians, singers, dancers and actors going back to repertory work after their summer stocks, there's more good news happening now than there was, say, back in June.
