Show Summary

Book by Craig Lucas
Music and Lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin

One of the most captivating musicals ever to be adapted for the stage, An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy Award-winning film and features the music of George and Ira Gershwin.

Set in the French capital in the wake of World War II, An American in Paris tells the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl, and an indomitable European city – each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of international conflict. Inspired by the Academy-Award winning 1951 film, the new stage musical features a ravishing score by George and Ira Gershwin and a fresh, sophisticated book by Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas.

The show’s timeless musical numbers include “I Got Rhythm,” “‘S Wonderful,” “But Not For Me,” “The Man I Love,” “Shall We Dance?” and “(I’ll Build A) Stairway To Paradise”.

An American in Paris is presented by agreement with Tams-Witmark.
