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

Full of dance, romance and glorious Gershwin. The Sunday Times

A wildly successful stage adaptation of the Gene Kelly film. Financial Times

This spectacularly ravishing show has rhythm, romance and razzle-dazzle. Mail on Sunday

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

American in Paris - excellent

We did not know what to expect, i feared the worst when my wife discovered what we were seeing, when she said, Oh it is your choice then. No she loved it it had a good story, brilliant dancing especially the female lead, great set and costumes, excellent music. I wasn't disappointed but for me a bit to much dance, for my wife perfect dancing quantity and quality. So we had a great time. Happy wife, happy life.


London Box Office customer

brilliant dancing

although i didnt know the story, easy to follow, amazing dancing


London Box Office customer

Disappointing Musical

This was not one of the best shows I have seen. I was not expecting so much ballet. However the staging was excellent.


London Box Office customer

Quality

If like quality dance and good singing voices this is a must.


London Box Office customer

Great treat

London Box Office customer

Great set - shame about the plot

Superb lighting, music, costumes and dancing. Paper thin plot detracted rather enhanced.


London Box Office customer

High quality music,acting,singing,dancing

It is a shame that high quality on stage is not reflected in the audience who dress too casual and eat and drink through the show.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic - must see

The music and dancing is absolutely wonderful


London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

Beautiful

London Box Office customer

"UPLIFTING"

Did not know what to expect and was certainly not disappointed. Great Acting, Dancing, Set and a few giggles. Just Brilliant.


London Box Office customer

Extraordinary! One of the best musicals I've seen!

Such an underrated show, the dancing was phenomenal and the songs are still stuck in my head! I was smiling all the way through. The show had a bit of everything, comedy, romance and it was a real insight into French history. There was no dull moments, I would recommend anyone to see it, as I myself would watch it again and again. The story line isn't as simple as it sounds, it's actually very moving. Last of all, the characters were perfectly cast! Must see! Reviewed by female, aged 13


London Box Office customer

Good and artistic show. Dancing really first class an altogether delight.


London Box Office customer

Mesmerising dancing

Quality of singing and dancing exceptional


London Box Office customer

Wonderful show , a must see!

London Box Office customer

Missing a bit of romantic in your life-go to see it

London Box Office customer

Great entertainment

London Box Office customer

Bit boring though nice music

Rather long winded dance routines. Story a bit convoluted. Unengaging characters. Great sets.


London Box Office customer

Only If You Like Dance

A few well known songs and lots and lots and lots of dance. Most of the audience seemed to enjoy the show, I couldn't wait for it to be over, but then again I find dance extremely boring.


London Box Office customer

Awesome Show

From the music to the story. From the production to the acting this show is amazing. If you want a show that has the wow factor then this is for you two hours of pure joy.


London Box Office customer

A classic!

London Box Office customer

Lively but a little too much dancing in second half

Show was good but the second half could be reduced by 10 minutes as I found the dancing a little repetitive.


London Box Office customer

Simply stunning

London Box Office customer

a terrific musical ballet

London Box Office customer

A beautiful show full of colour and hope

London Box Office customer

Beautiful and breathtaking!

A wonderful love story. I enjoyed every minute.


London Box Office customer

Dance and spectacle

We loved the choreography, costumes and superb dancing and the staging was magnificent. The story is pretty thin and the non dance dialogue and action was far too ponderous and slow. It needed more pizzazz in this area. Back to the script for more sparkling quick-fire repartee!


London Box Office customer

Spectacular

Wonderful choreography and dancing. Clever sets and scene changes


London Box Office customer

Fun uplifting show

A fun show with a good love story and the playoff of the main characters was good. Dancing and staging was top notch. While Gershwin is a bit staid, the performance was well presented and the tunes were still exciting.


London Box Office customer

Ravishing

Stunning sets and exciting dancing coupled with Timeless music.


London Box Office customer

OUR ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THAT IT ENDED TOO QUICKLY. WE WANTED MORE


London Box Office customer

une magnifique production

belle musique. une belle distribution qui danse et chante a merveille. Une mise en scene seduisante jouant des espaces et de la lumière avec légèreté et talent. Du pure bonheur


London Box Office customer

Great girly night

London Box Office customer

A real treat for dance fans

A real treat for dance fans with both 'stage show' and ballet styles featuring (you can tell I am not an afficianado). The singing was quite good too and all production values excellent but if you don't enjoy dance routines you are not going to like this.


London Box Office customer

A Chicagoan in London

No long lines at bar a welcome change! Comfortable temp inside. The construction out front made the entrance not easily visible for us. Great orchestra & cast!


London Box Office customer

Exciting

Fine orchestra, brilliant sets, wonderful dancing. Gershwin' music!


London Box Office customer

Great night out

London Box Office customer

A must see

A fantastic show that transports you back in time to the gene Kelly and Fred Astaire days. Loved every second. One downside...from our seats at the side we could see the scene change people messing about while waiting to change.


London Box Office customer

Great design.


London Box Office customer

Incredible talented engaging show

I loved the reminder of times gone by. The performers were multi talented acting, dancing and singing. I think this is the best show I have ever been to. Thank you to all those who made the show happen.


London Box Office customer

Nostalgic, romance.

Fabulous singing and dancing with stylish costumes. Enjoy a nostalgic trip with some wonderful Gershwin music.


London Box Office customer

Totally uplifting

Joyous. Dance and Orchestra impeccably rehearsed. The stage sets and lighting were really effective. I chose the show as i was bringing non theatre goers to have a London Theatre experience, they were enthralled. Excellent seats


London Box Office customer

Disappointed

The music was spoiled by excessive volume & very poor Gershwin. The multiple scenery changes were clever But irrelevant. We enjoyed the dancing but rather average singing with a very weak storyline-disappointing!


London Box Office customer

Wide Range of Spectacles

Even though I was near the top of the seating in the Circle, the view of the stage and actors were still wonderful!


London Box Office customer

Light hearted enjoyable afternoon


London Box Office customer

Do not see

Was such s long boring show...


London Box Office customer

Visually stunning

A lightweight plot provided the structure for a song and dance extravaganza. There was so much to admire : stunning set design, great music and choreography, lovely costumes, all in all a thoroughly enjoyable show. I thought the last dance routine was overlong but it was very hot and my seat was beginning to become uncomfortable . . . .


London Box Office customer

peerless dancing and set design!

Breathtaking dance sequences and faultless, ingenious set changes. Worth every penny!


London Box Office customer

Dance the night away

Very enjoyable and heartfelt musical and dance. Anyone who enjoys Gershwin would be thrilled.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic show, don't miss it!

London Box Office customer

A fabulous show

This is a superb show with excellent dancing. The whole cast are great, and although the story leaves many loose ends, it is a great evening out. If you are interested in seeing the dancers feet, don't sit too close to the front as the stage doesn't have a good rake and you can't see them.


London Box Office customer

A Great Way To Spend An Evening

With a new improved book, the 1950s film inspired by Gershwin's great symphonic work comes alive. With outstanding dancing and singing and fabulous sets and lighting this is superior and sophisticated entertainment that is not to be missed


London Box Office customer

Spectacular

London Box Office customer

Stunning

The staging was amazing, the dancing fantastic and the music wonderful. Not enough superlatives to go around.

Australians in London

This was our first time at the West End, we had bought our elderly parents and hoped that there was disabled access. To how concern there were not but however to our amazement, the staff compensated for that with their more than helpful assistance. We wish to specially thank Benjamin, who was gracious and lovely, he even parted the sea of people for my mother to give her priority access to the toilet! He was the absolute highlight of our theatre experience. Thank you so much Benjamin!!


London Box Office customer

If you like great dancing,great costumes,great music,great lighting inspirational musical changes an incredible traumatic experience awaits you.This story has it all wonderfully orchestrated,scenic changes carried out with swift delicate expertise.The dance routines are wonderful and the speed of changes in costumes are sometimes breathtaking. Absolutely love it


London Box Office customer

Wonderful

London Box Office customer

Outstanding

London Box Office customer

Great dancers

I would class this as a musical ballet and not a musical. I would have preferred more of a back story and One of the dances was very long. It was still good


London Box Office customer

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!


London Box Office customer

Slick

Lovely dancing and singing,story held up well recommended to anyone


London Box Office customer

Fabulous production and a talented cast

Uplifting and fun. Lots of ballet -beautifully danced and acted.

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

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.
