AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is the new Tony Award®-winning musical about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

Acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award®-winner Christopher Wheeldon brings the magic and romance of Paris into perfect harmony with unforgettable songs from George and Ira Gershwin in the show that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2014/15 season.

Thank you Segerstrom Center for the Arts for the complimentary tickets. All Opinions are my own.

A classic is born! AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is sensational and it transported me into a world filled with romance, friendship, music, art, and ballet.

My mother has a great appreciation for classic music and theater, and I knew I had to take her to see this show. I’m thrilled that we got to spend quality time and experience the magic together.

The choreography was extraordinary and executed in true art form.

My mom raved about the costumes and the set design. She was born in the nineteen thirties, and she said that the show was accurate and true to the era.

The dreamlike scenes were flawless and continuously changing. We were often mesmerized and lost in a trance during the show.

The “I Got Rhythm” performance was astounding (my favorite part of the show) It is no surprise this new musical received  fourteen Tony nominations.

Bravo! The audience gave the talented cast a standing ovation. This musical is simply wonderful and a MUST-SEE!

An American In Paris will be in town now through May 7, 2017!
