Background


Acclaimed as “a perfect integration of dance, romance and classic Gershwin” (The New York Times), An American In Paris is the award-winning, thrillingly staged and astonishingly danced Broadway musical featuring some of the greatest music and lyrics ever written.


Performed by a company of over 50 actors, dancers and musicians, and directed and choreographed by Olivier and Tony® Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, this stunning re-imagining of the Oscar® winning film played a sold out, world premiere engagement at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris before transferring triumphantly to Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the year.


Written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas, the “ravishing production” (Variety) features set and costume designs by seven-time Tony® Award-winner Bob Crowley (The Audience; Mary Poppins); projections by the renowned British designers 59 Productions (War Horse; London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony); sound by Jon Weston and lighting by Natasha Katz, who won her fifth Tony® Award for this production.


Synopsis


Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility.


Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war.


This “breathtakingly beautiful staging of the MGM musical” (The Independent), features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most popular and timeless songs, including I Got Rhythm, ’S Wonderful and They Can’t Take That Away From Me, together with George Gershwin’s sublime compositions Concerto in F and An American in Paris.
