An American In ParisDuration 2h35

Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road, London, United Kingdom, W1T 7AQ

An American In Paris, the breathtakingly beautiful new Broadway musical about love, hope and living your dreams, has opened at London’s stunningly restored Dominion Theatre to standing ovations from the public and a record-setting 28 five-star rave reviews from the critics.

Winner of 4 Tony® Awards, this “truly ravishing version of the Hollywood film” (The Guardian) features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved songs (including I Got Rhythm, ‘S Wonderful, I’ll Build A Stairway To Paradise, But Not For Me, The Man I Love and They Can’t Take That Away From Me) and is directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, written by Craig Lucas and designed by Bob Crowley.

“An impassioned love-letter to art and life” (The Daily Telegraph), An American In Paris finds 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.

Age Recommendation: 6+.
