An American In Paris, the breathtakingly beautiful new Broadway musical about love, hope and living your dreams, has opened at London’s stunningly restored Dominion Theatre to standing ovations from the public and an incredible collection of 28 five-star rave reviews from the critics (including The Guardian, The Times, The Sunday Times, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Financial Times, Daily Express, Sunday Express, City AM, WhatsOnStage, The Stage and the Radio Times).
Winner of 4 Tony® Awards on Broadway, this “wildly successful stage adaptation” (Financial Times) of the classic MGM film musical “soars to exhilarating heights of brilliance that must be seen to be believed” (Mail on Sunday) and is directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, written by Craig Lucas and designed by Bob Crowley.
Acclaimed as “the most elegant, exuberant and tuneful musical in town” (Sunday Express), the production features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved songs (including I Got Rhythm, ‘S Wonderful, I’ll Build a Stairway To Paradise, But Not For Me, The Man I Love and They Can't Take That Away from Me).
“An impassioned love-letter to art and life” (The Daily Telegraph), An American In Paris finds a young American GI pursuing his dream to make it as a painter in the aftermath of war. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer, the ‘City of Light’ becomes the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love.
Michael Billington, THE GUARDIAN
"You almost feel you couldn’t ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long.”
Anne Treneman, THE TIMES
“AN AMERICAN IN PARIS IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER MUSICAL
ON THE LONDON STAGE: sumptuously beautiful and heartfelt, it has a romantic pizzazz all of its own.”
Sarah Compton, WHATSONSTAGE
