Story for An American in Paris

Inspired by the Academy-Award winning film, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS brings this classic tale to Broadway for the first time with music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, a book by Craig Lucas and direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon. An American in Paris won four 2015 Tony Awards. The hit musical has also won four Drama Desk Awards and four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Musical, the Drama League Award for Best Musical, three Fred and Adele Astaire Awards and two Theatre World Awards.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

The score of AN AMERICAN IN PARIS includes the songs "I Got Rhythm," "Liza," "'S Wonderful," "But Not For Me," "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise," and orchestral music including "Concerto in F," "Second Prelude," "Second Rhapsody/Cuban Overture" and "An American In Paris."

Critics’ Reviews for An American in Paris

"Christopher Wheeldon's choreography for 'An American in Paris' is so's one of the highest lights of a 2014-2015 season notable for more and better dancing than has been seen for years."

David Finkle, Huffington Post

"This gorgeously danced — and just plain gorgeous — production pays loving tribute to the 1951 movie, to the marriage of music and movement, and to cherished notions about romance that have been a defining element of the American musical theater practically since its inception. "

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"This is the most thrilling dance-driven musical since Twyla Tharp's wordless 'Movin' Out' in 2002."

Linda Winer, Newsday
