Romance! Adventure! Gershwin! Who could ask for anything more?! In postwar France, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. Gershwin’s soaring Melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love in this breathtaking production.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS tells the story of World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan who hopes to start a new life in the recently liberated city of Paris as a painter. But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secrets!
