An American In Paris

It opened in Paris and then took Broadway by storm and now the multi-award-winning An American in Paris is lighting up London at the Dominion Theatre.

American GI Jerry Mulligan is desperately trying to make his way as a painter in Paris when he meets beautiful young dancer Lise. This chance encounter opens up a whole new world to Jerry, one in which art, sensuality, friendship and love combine against the troubled backdrop of post-war France. Featuring Broadway stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope as Jerry Mulligan and Lise Dassin, this is a production not to be missed.

Inspired by the Oscar winning film of the same name, An American In Paris is one of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved musicals and has been hailed as a flawless marriage of music, dance and romance. Exhilarating and impeccably performed, An American In Paris features more than fifty musicians, actors and dancers as well as many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most popular songs, including ‘I Got Rhythm’ and ‘They Can’t Take That Away From Me’. Directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, who is supported by a crew of heavyweights in the costume, set design, sound and lighting fields, An American In Paris is a ravishing and elegant production will sweep you off your feet.

  • Amazing choreography!

    Lots of beautiful bits of scenery, some really memorable songs, but the whole thing feels a bit flat. The choreography is more contemporary/ballet than anything else, and I don't think turning your back completely to the legacy of the dance of that era works. Too much movement at times with the set on wheels, and not enough made of the best moments when it all comes together nicely. I'm not sure whether it's a director or a script writer failure, I suspect a bit of both. Still, some people seem to enjoy it.

  • Amazing dance numbers, great fun

    25 April 2017

    The dancers (esp the 2 leads) were stunning - hadn't expected it to be as balletic as it was. Fantastic orchestra/singing kept our toes tapping. Great sets and stylish 40's costumes. Not a great storyline but all in all a delicious confection with some dazzling performances from the dancers. Took my mother-in-law who said it 'was every bit as good as Top Hat' - praise indeed!

    25 April 2017

    Very enjoyable. Positives were: * Marvellous staging * Great music * Good ballet dancing Negatives were: * Not as good as the film * Where was the tap dancing? * Singing not good enough (poor pitching) * Storyline unnecessarily complicated
