A new stage adaptation for the 21st CenturyBuy Tickets
Premiering at the Theatre du Chalet in Paris before heading to Broadway for it's American stage debut, An American in Paris, the cherished story of a young artist discovering life and love after the war, has been given a brand new adaptation that promises to present the story afresh for a new generation of audiences, whilst keeping the heart of Gershwin's beloved, witty and elegant musical.
First seen as symphonic poem by George Gershwin in 1928 as a love-letter his time in Paris as a young man, suggesting the energy and vitality of the city. It was adapted as a movie in 1951 by Vincente Minnelli (Liza's dad) for MGM, it starred the legendary Gene Kelly and Lesie Caron in the central roles. It won six Academy Awards and cemented Kelly as the quintessential presence in American dance.
To be young and restless in Paris is a dream for many of us, but in the late 1940's, it's the buoyant Jerry Mulligan's life. After escaping the horrors of the war, he moves to the city of romance in the hopes of avoiding the daily grind and making it as a painter. Aided by wealthy fellow American Milo Davenport, his reputation is on the up, but his heart is stolen by the ingenue, Lise. Day dreaming and dancing, with the Gershwin's wonderful score, An American in Paris celebrates the best in life, in true Parisian style!
