AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
Winner of four Tony Awards and inspired by the Academy Award-winning film from 1951, this exquisite fresh-from-Broadway production features your favorite Gershwin songs including “I Got Rhythm,” “’S Wonderful,” and “Stairway to Paradise.” ROMANCE! ADVENTURE! GERSHWIN! WHO COULD ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE! The 2020 tour, produced by Big League Productions, will travel to more than 80 cities across the USA.
In post war Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world discovers the power of love in this breathtaking production. 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.
