An American in Paris
This stage musical was inspired by the Academy Award-winning film An American in Paris. It features the music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin, a book by Craig Lucas and the Tony Award-winning choreography and direction of Christopher Wheeldon.
A four-time Tony Award-winning production, An American in Paris beautifully combines the timeless story, classic music and dancing from the movie to create a magical and romantic musical that is loved by theatergoers.
An American in Paris tells the story of Jerry Mulligan, a struggling American painter living in Paris. Jerry is "discovered" by an influential heiress who is interested in him, not his art. Things get complicated when Jerry falls for a young French girl who happens to be engaged.
This romantic musical production about a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl in an invincible European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war, has become a favorite among both audiences and critics alike.
