A new dance musical based on the classic 1951 film, telling the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city. More…
'An American in Paris' is the story of World War II Army veteran Jerry Mulligans, who chooses newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. Jerry's life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret. Soon it becomes clear that Jerry's friends are also vying for Lise's love. This romantic tangle can only be untied through the miracle of dance set to George and Ira Gershwin's classic score.
