An American in Paris
An American in Paris is an uplifting and entertaining musical centering around the period between the world wars. The story was originally based on the book by Craig Lucas. The musical features beloved songs by American songwriting brothers Ira and George Gershwin, such as “I Got Rhythm,” “Second Prelude” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me.” An American in Paris was nominated for twelve Tony Awards and eight Outer Critics Circle Awards, as well as a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
The plot revolves around main character Jerry Mulligan—an American veteran of WWI—and his compatriots Henri, Lise and Adam. The story is set in post-WWI Paris, where Jerry decides to live after completing his service, searching for artistic solace after the war’s horrors in a city with its own scars. As with many artists, Mulligan seeks a muse for his paintings in Paris. His muse takes on human form when he reconnects with Lise, a woman from his past. A love triangle develops between Henri, Lise and Jerry, forcing the characters to examine both their futures and their war-torn pasts.
Filled with familiar songs and entertaining, energetic dance sequences set against a romantic Paris backdrop, An American in Paris deserves the glowing accolades it received from publications such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and the New York Times.
