Inspired by the 1951 film starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, this Tony Award-winning production features an extraordinary score by George and Ira Gershwin. Intrigued by a mysterious French woman, and ready to rebuild his life at the end of World War II, American soldier Jerry Mulligan decides to stay in Paris to pursue his passion for painting. He makes friends with Adam Hochberg, a composer and fellow veteran, and Henri Baurel and reconnects with Lise Dassin, a beautiful ballerina. The brilliant score for An American in Paris includes many well-known Gershwin classics like I Got Rhythm, S’ Wonderful, But Not For Me, Stairway to Paradise, and They Can't Take That Away From Me, with haunting orchestral music.
