Our Most Lavish Production! The thrilling 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 war.

Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. But Jerry's life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret - and realizes he is not her only suitor.


Described as an extended symphonic poem, George Gershwin’s 1928 “An American in Paris rapidly became one of his most famous compositions. The 1951 MGM film starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron was inspired by Gershwin’s score and became one of the studio’s most acclaimed and famous movie musicals, winning six Academy Awards. In 2015.


The stage musical was inspired by the Academy Award-winning film and features a score which includes the Gershwin songs “I Got Rhythm,” “'S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” “Stairway to Paradise,” “They Can’t Take That Away”  and “An American In Paris.”
