On March 4th, 2017, previews began for 'An American in Paris' musical at the London Dominion Theatre, and the press night was on March 21st 2017. The play will be running until September 30th, 2017.
Directly following celebrated engagements in New York and Paris, this critically acclaimed and multi Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical of love, hope and living your dreams is now lighting up London.
Inspired by the Oscar® winning MGM film starring Leslie Caron and Gene Kelly, An American in Paris features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s timelessly popular songs and music, including I Got Rhythm, I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise, The Man I Love, They Can’t Take That Away From Me and ’S Wonderful.
Featuring its original, award-winning Broadway stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, and an exceptional company of 50 actors, dancers and musicians, An American in Paris tells the story of 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.
Staged by some of the most celebrated theatre-makers in the world (including director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and designer Bob Crowley, together with the writer Craig Lucas), don’t miss this breathtakingly beautiful production that The New York Times called “a dazzling, transporting musical that turns Paris into a kaleidoscope of romance”.
Jane Asher plays the role of Madame Baurel.
