An American in Paris – Fox Theatre
127

Inspired by the Academy Award winning film, An American In Paris transports the audience to post-war Paris, where romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. In this poignant production, Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love. Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly liberated Paris to try and make his mark as a painter. Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets the mysterious Lise, a young Parisian ballet dancer with a haunting secret who, like Jerry, is yearning for a new beginning. This exquisite production is filled with music from legendary composers George and Ira Gershwin, featuring the classics “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “’S Wonderful” and “But Not for Me.”
