Are you ready for a sensuous modern romance, a show that has already wowed audiences in Paris and on Broadway? Don't miss your chance to experience a musical featuring a suite of unforgettable George and Ira Gershwin songs including I Got Rhythm, 'S Wonderful and They Can't Take That Away From Me, as well as the sublime An American in Paris itself.

An American in Paris – The Story

American Jerry Mulligan is young, strong and fit, ready for love. The Second World War has just ended and Jerry is in Paris, a city filled with new hope and possibilities after the ravages of six devastating years of conflict. An ex-GI, Jerry wants to stay in Paris and start a new life as an artist. When he runs across the young and very beautiful dancer, Lise, the backdrop of the Paris streets becomes totally magical, transformed by their love into a sensual wonderland of art, friendship and joy in the aftermath of war.

The show's world première raised the roof at Paris's gorgeous Théâtre du Châtelet, then transferred to Broadway in a blaze of critical glory. It's the most-awarded musical of the year, hailed as a triumph of the stage musical genre.

The New York Times calls the production “a perfect integration of dance, romance and classic Gershwin”. The Chicago Tribune calls it a “spectacular production”. The Independent newspaper says it's a “breathtakingly beautiful staging of the MGM musical”, just three of a collection of excellent reviews. Now it's making its way to London, the theatrical event of 2017 and a truly stunning re imagining of the Oscar winning MGM film.

The musical is playing at the newly-refurbished and restored Grade 2 listed Dominion theatre, the perfect venue for a wonderful romance, a feel-good classic in the making. The original, award-winning Broadway stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope are coming over the Atlantic to do their spectacular thing in England's capital, joined by a large, talented cast of more than fifty actors, dancers and musicians. And it's directed and choreographed to perfection by the Olivier and Tony award-winner Christopher Wheeldon.

The respected Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas wrote the show, with amazing set and costume designs by the seven-time Tony winner Bob Crowley, with big theatrical hits like The Audience and Mary Poppins under his belt. Creative projections come from 59 Productions, who played a part in the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, and the Tony-winning orchestrations are by Christopher Austin, Don Sebesky and Bill Elliott. Sound comes courtesy of Jon Weston and the lighting is by Natasha Katz, another multiple Tony award-winner. Whatever angle you look at it from, this is star-studded stuff!

Press Reviews

Christopher Wheeldon’s superb show is a riot of colour and movement, with irresistible dance routines and a wealth of Gershwin classics... theatrical gold. The Guardian

IT’S A SPECIAL SHOW - TRULY IT IS. You almost feel you couldn’t ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long. The Times

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER MUSICAL ON THE LONDON STAGE: sumptuously beautiful and heartfelt, it has a romantic pizzazz all of its own. WhatsOnStage

THE BEST-LOOKING AND BEST-DANCED MUSICAL IN TOWN IS AN INSTANT CLASSIC. It is sheer musical theatre magic. The Stage

Sparkling

The first half is disappointing - an unnecessarily understated opening followed the uninspiring - but after the interval indulgence was more than rewarded by a breathtaking cyclone of colour, great staging and an amazing mix of modern dance and traditional wedding ballet. In the end, a triumph!

Sophistacated show, with good performances all round, but personally for us too much ballet, only one instance of tap dancing.

Wonderful evening of dance

A very entertaining evening. Bit late inside as big queues for very inadequate bag check. Show was excellent. Modern ballet to Gershwin music, less songs than we thought and more dance but still worked very well. Lighting and stage sets were brilliant.

A London Westend Experience

This is my first visit to London and my first musical. I didnt know what to expect. My boyfriend made the arrangements. He has seen the movie and acted in a musical before. My seat was in the Circle. Gave me a good over view of the stage. I love the dancing scenes best, music second. The story a bit weak. The female lead had a sqeaky voice and accent. H'lf the time I couldnt catch what she was trying to say, which was a pity. The male lead danced very well. The scenery change was very clever. The orchestra was brilliant. We just visited Paris. It was romantic for us. That made me enjoy the show even more.


London Box Office customer

The set designers deserve endless credit. Spectacular!!


London Box Office customer

Fabulous interpretation

I'd your enjoy ballethe and contemporary dance then this is for you. Singing and acting greathe.


London Box Office customer

A must-see!

Great show! Great acting, great music and setting.


London Box Office customer

Stunning Ballet with an amazing Gershwin score

This is an excellent show, with the quality of a Royal Ballet production under Christopher Wheeldon. A magical score. Yes it's different to the 1951 musical, but not to its detriment. The storyline wasnt as strong as the original, but the power of the ballet and Gershwin more than made up for it.


London Box Office customer

A definite must see

Wonderful ballet and dance scenes. Fantastic set and of course all the old songs


London Box Office customer

Outstanding modern day classic

This show is one of the best. Combines fabulous modern ballet with memorable music to create a rejuvenated classic. First class thoroughly entertaining and exceeded expectations.


London Box Office customer

Best cubist ballet

American in Paris music was excellently played. Other Gershwin music also delightful, though sometimes out of context. Stageing excellent. Cubist ballet to American in Paris music was the star of the show


London Box Office customer

Loved it! S'wonderful, s' marvellous!

London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

Not the best of musicals.

Bit disappointed as didn't live up to the hype. Too many quick distracting scene changes and fragmented sets being moved around - difficult keeping up with the 'story' line. Choreography and dancing although technically good, was more akin to a ballet performance. Best bit was in the 2nd act - the routine with glitzy show girls, top hat and tails for the men, very good set design. This was followed by excellent abstract set design and appropriate dance routine.


London Box Office customer

Tricky....

The story jumped a lot and the 3 main guys looked very much a like! Some scenes were far to long too. There are some quiet moments and you can hear the underground trains from Tottenham Court Road which is a shame! - disappointed as LOVED the film. Hey ho


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

London Box Office customer

Feel good. Must see.

London Box Office customer

Simply the most beautiful show I've ever seen!

Visually stunning and a musical masterpiece. You must see this show if you are in London! 24 hours later and I'm still singing the songs and tapping my toes! S'wonderful indeed!


London Box Office customer

Dancing spectacular

Dancing was outstanding, especially last ballet scene. The theatre set was good and slick and leading characters were strong. Bearing in mind it is based on the 1950's Oscar winning film, it had a lot to live up to. I believe it did!


London Box Office customer

Must see! Incredible!

Unbelievable talent and general production.


London Box Office customer

Love Gershwin

London Box Office customer

That's entertainment!!!

Great show, quality production, good staging and great design and lighting. Choreography and dancing first class. A must!


London Box Office customer

Fabulous sets

Singing was very good, sets top notch


London Box Office customer

Spectacular

Far better than I ever imagined. Wonderful dancing, singing and music


London Box Office customer

It has everything.

The level of dancing and singing was extraordinary . The set was very imaginative and created the right mood for each scene. The cast seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and were a fabulous team.The best west end performance I've seen since Farinelli and the King.


London Box Office customer

Not for me

A colorful show, but did not think the storyline adapted well to the stage. Found myself watching the lighting and stage set rather than following the rather dull story.


London Box Office customer

A must see.


London Box Office customer

5 Stars for everything.. Dancing wonderful brought a teer to my eyes


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

London Box Office customer

Beautiful music, sumptuous visuals, wonderful dancing.

This was a fabulous afternoon's entertainment. Performances were wonderful across the board - Gershwin would be proud. Set and design really enhanced the experience. A real treat.


London Box Office customer

Stunning staging, real wow factor

A visually stunning show that leaves you breathless at times. The dance sequences are mesmeric and the singing extremely competent. The only thing missing is a chemistry between the two leads; perhaps because they are dancers, not actors.


London Box Office customer

A wonderful show; definitely a must see.

London Box Office customer

Terrific

I enjoyed it a lot. A very full house enjoyed the witty text and excellent singing and dancing. Story line, production, direction to match ... Michael Billington's praise in the Guardian fully in order.


London Box Office customer

Imaginative

Loved the dancing, set design, costumes and performers. Second half was sensational. Just didn't like the story. Would have preferred it as just a ballet. We'll worth seeing though.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

The music and dance were amazing and would appeal to all visitors


London Box Office customer

Musical with great dancec/ballet

Entertaining, slik, beautifully executed song and dance show. If you like traditional songs and love stories mixed with ballet then you will love this show...


London Box Office customer

A must see, be prepared for an amazing emotional journey

The story will appeal to any romantic. they dancing was amazing, i have never seen anything like it, a mix of ballet and modern in a musical. I was lucky enough to see the alternate lead Ashley Day! I cannot imagine anyone else in the role.


London Box Office customer

simply brilliant

This show is superb: music, choreography, dancing , singing and acting. The best performance I have seen in a long time.


London Box Office customer

Great show, beautiful ballet

London Box Office customer

Wonderful music & dance!

London Box Office customer

an amazing uplifting musical - a must see

London Box Office customer

Everyone was superb but the leads were astonishingly talented in acting, singing and - remarkably - dance. The whole production was visually stunning. A brilliant staging of the classic movie. I loved it from start to finish.


London Box Office customer

fantastic sets, music was good and the show was full on non stop entertainment

the show has fantastic sets, the music is great and the acting superb. end to end full-on entertainment.


London Box Office customer

Worth going

Sidelights of the Theatre should be dimmed down, leaving only emergency exit with light. If not it affects the overall experience.


London Box Office customer

Gives the feel good factor

Something for everybody,music,singing,dancing,comedy,boy gets girl,a joy


London Box Office customer

Excellent, great French vibes

London Box Office customer

Pretty good

Overall, this was an enjoyable show – though we thought it was a slightly odd blend of dance and musical theatre. The story often seemed to take second place to the dancing, which we had not anticipated at all. For me, the quality of the set design and almost constantly changing backgrounds felt very accomplished. The orchestra were great, though perhaps too many liberties were taken with the score which maybe isn't the best way to introduce younger generations to these songs.


London Box Office customer

Fabulous

A gorgeous production, well crafted, imaginative sets, the dancing was fabulous, in a very comfortable theatre.


London Box Office customer

Awesome set, costumes and dance

London Box Office customer

Perfect evening's entertainment

In brief: Beautifully choreographed, fabulous music, sets, costumes and first class performances from dancers/actors/singers. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it all. Lovely theatre. Recommend.


London Box Office customer

Wonderful, especially for dance lovers!

Went with 2 female friends - we all love dance - and it was perfect for us! Lovely story, often humorous dialogue, and great performances throughout.


London Box Office customer

Spectacular show

My teenage daughter and I saw this show on Saturday night - I was unfamiliar with the story but knew the show was a 'modern classic'. The scenery and lighting added so much to the show but the real stars were the leads with spectacular dancing from both. The 'show' scene in the second half was the most amazing dancing with its energy and technical skill - the dancers really gave their all. I cannot recommend this show too strongly. It is not a traditional musical or ballet - but a whole lot more.


London Box Office customer

Good music and dancing

Music and dancing were really good. However, the plot is not that interesting.


London Box Office customer

s'marvellous! A truly wonderful production and dance at its best

Lovely theatre. Welcoming staff. Seats just about comfortable but good leg room. Air conditioning a little noisy in the quiet scenes. Dancing was heavenly - the lead dancers were truly superb and the rest of the cast were good too. Music was Gerswin so it couldn't be anything but divine. All in all, a feel good production that leaves you singing and swaying as you leave the theatre.


London Box Office customer

Great dance

Saigon stumbles on Broadway whilst Paris soars in the West End

27 Mar 2017 in News

An American In Paris Often visitors from New York will ask me what theatre I'd recommend they see whilst in the U.K. And, honestly, that's quite a difficult question to answer. So many hit shows have either already been seen in New York or are about transfer there.

This cross-fertilisation began in the late 1980s, a strange decade in the history of New York musicals when they weren't producing anything of note whilst the British were dominating the world with Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals like Cats and Phantom of the Opera and mega hits also produced by Cameron Macintosh including Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, both of which earned their reputations in the West End before taking American Theatre by storm.

Review: An American in Paris

16 Mar 2017 in Reviews

Lise Dassin - An American in Paris One of Wheeldon’s finest moments that captures the romantic essence of its Parisian roots and brings it into the present day. Experience a cast and creative team working its peak in a fitting homage to an iconic style.

Think of American Jazz and the roaring twenties and you automatically think of the Gershwin brothers. George and Ira are synonymous with the style – Rhapsody in Blue; virtuoso piano jazz standards; lilting, dreamy trumpet melodies; plush orchestration. All the aspects of a timeless classic composition can be found in An American In Paris – fitting, since it is itself one of the true great films of its era, a bastion of historical Hollywood in all its intoxicating glamour.

Review: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at the Palace Theatre, New York City

25 Mar 2016 in Reviews

An American in Paris Word on the street is that the show will be coming to London sometime in 2017.

Over the past 15 years there has been a plethora of adaptations of Hollywood movies into stage musicals. The success of these ventures from film to the stage depends on whether or not the theatrical team behind the transfer is able to create a piece that is not just a lazy copy but rather one that has a unique theatrical language and reason for being on the stage.

An American in Paris

28 Apr 2015 in Broadway Shows

Hand to God You can usually describe a musical by saying "its a bit like" something else.

I think one of the reason why I fell so completely for AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is that it's so fresh and so original in its concept and execution.

Don't get me wrong this is main stream Broadway fare but somehow the Gershwin estate have given these guys permission to retell the story of the classic movie musical of the same name but with a crunchy new script that doesn't shy away from the Nazi legacy in Paris and real heartbreak.
