An American in Paris is on now at London's Dominion Theatre, having opened to standing ovations from the public and an incredible collection of 28 five-star rave reviews from the critics.
Directly following celebrated engagements in New York and Paris, this critically acclaimed and multi Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical of love, hope and living your dreams is now lighting up London.
Inspired by the Oscar® winning MGM film starring Gene Kelly, An American in Paris features many of George & Ira Gershwin’s timelessly popular songs and music, including "I Got Rhythm", "I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise", "The Man I Love", "They Can’t Take That Away From Me" and "’S Wonderful".
Jerry Mulligan is an American GI pursuing his dream 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.
Acclaimed by The New York Times as “a perfect integration of dance, romance and classic Gershwin”, An American in Paris features the original, award-winning Broadway stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope. An exceptional company of 50 actors, dancers and musicians also includes Jane Asher as Madame Baurel.
Directed and choreographed by Olivier and Tony® Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, this celebrated production played a sold out, world premiere engagement at the Théàtre du Châtelet in Paris before transferring triumphantly to Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the year.
