Set in the French capital in the wake of World War II, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS tells 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 international conflict. The storied streets of the City of Lights become the dance floor to a ravishing and passionate voyage into art, friendship, and love.
Inspired by the Academy-Award winning 1951 film, the new stage musical features a ravishing score by George and Ira Gershwin and a fresh, sophisticated book by Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas. The show's timeless musical numbers include "I Got Rhythm," "'S Wonderful," "But Not For Me," "The Man I Love," "Shall We Dance?" and "(I'll Build A) Stairway To Paradise."
