Audiences Stateside have been flocking to see the new production of An American In Paris and soon it will thrill West End audiences just as much when in opens at the Dominion theatre in March 2017.
A stunning re-imagining of the Oscar-winning film, An American in Paris transports you to the streets of the French capital where American GI Jerry Mulligan is striving for success as a painter after the end of WWII. Finally liberated, Paris is overflowing with joyous hope and sheer potential, and a chance encounter with the beautiful Lise leads Jerry on a journey of friendship, love and the sensuous romance of art.
On Broadway An American in Paris, directed and choreographed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, became the most awarded musical of the year.
With a timeless score by George and Ira Gershwin and a company of over 50 actors, dancers and musicians with astounding choreography, jaw-dropping spectacle and triumphant songs, British audiences are also treated to original Broadway cast members Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope when the show opens in 2017.
