Tobin Center Signature Series: An American in Paris
In post-war Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. George Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love in this breathtaking production.
Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret – and realizes he is not her only suitor.
Winner of four Tony® Awards and inspired by the Academy Award®-winning film, this production features favorite Gershwin songs, including “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “‘S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” and “Stairway to Paradise.”
