An American in Paris
An American in Paris is a romantic love story between an American Soldier, a gorgeous young French girl and a iconic city. It’s about new beginnings. World War II has ended, love, freedom and dance is the air. Some of the most enthralling dance numbers you will ever see in a Broadway Show. The chemistry between the two leading characters played by Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope is strong and convincing. “ I Got Rhythm” and “ But Not For Me” are among the Gershwin songs that are covered in the production. This makes for an interesting mix of fantastic numbers that run from sultry, to romantic, to serious and to down right fun. Audiences are screaming allocades and the critics are saying YES, YES YES. Academy Award winning film of the same name was used as inspiration for this musical. The dance talent on the cast is profound and ballet is a strong element in this show. The show is snappy, entertaining and precise. The dance numbers have the precision of ballet and the lightness of broadway hoofing. All this makes this a strong go to for an enjoyable evening. Directed by two-time Tony Award® nominee Christopher Wheeldon, this musical just shines.
