An American in Paris
North American Tour
“This gorgeously danced — and just plain gorgeous — production pays loving tribute to the 1951 movie, to the marriage of music and movement, and to cherished notions about romance that have been a defining element of the American musical theater practically since its inception.”
“AN AMERICAN IN PARIS weds music and movement, song and story with such exhilarating brio that you may find your own feet fidgeting under your seat before it’s over, and your heart alight with a longing to be swept up in the dance.”
The romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war, is the stuff of Broadway dreams.
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is the kind of new Broadway musical you thought they didn’t make anymore—a musical filled with beauty, artistry and the unmistakable beat of the human heart.
Highly acclaimed choreographer CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON directs a remarkable cast of singers, actors and dancers as they bring the magic and romance of Paris and the timeless songs of GEORGE GERSHWIN AND IRA GERSHWIN into perfect harmony. AN AMERICAN IN PARIS also features a book from Tony Award® nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist, CRAIG LUCAS, sets and costumes by six-time Tony® winner BOB CROWLEY and lighting by three-time Tony® winner NATASHA KATZ.
