‘A sweet tale to melt any heart’
‘A sweetly funny, gorgeously tender musical rom-com’
‘Tout à fait charmant’
‘A multifaceted gem, chock-full of love, generosity and joy’
‘A funny, charming and awkward love story’
Adapted by Emma Rice from the French-Belgian film Les Émotifs Anonymes, with lyrics and music by Christopher Dimond and Michael Kooman, this new musical is a treat for all the senses. Filled with all the joy and pain it takes to survive and love in the modern world, Romantics Anonymous is a tale that will lift any heart.
Angélique makes beautiful chocolates, carefully infused with all the emotion that seems to overwhelm her in daily life. Jean-René runs a chocolate factory that is running out of steam, rather like his own existence. Both seek help from the usual sources: Jean-René favours self-help tapes and Angélique joins a support group, Les Émotifs Anonymes.
Romantics Anonymous is an unusual and tender love story in which the obstacles to happiness are not the usual external barriers, but those sneaky little ones we know all too intimately: the ones within.
‘A gentle, joyous, melt-in-the-mouth show’
‘It melts your heart and tickles your fancy, leaving you giddy with laughter, tearful and elated’
‘An intimate, delectably joyous mix of the silly and the stirring’
‘A life-affirming treat’
‘The feel-good factor is through the roof’
