Hi Film Folk!
Tony-winning Broadway musical An American in Paris – based on the Oscar-winning 1951 film – is coming to cinemas across the UK today!
The dazzlingly romantic production – directed by Tony-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon – follows American GI Jerry Mulligan as he struggles to make it as a painter in the ‘City of Light’ after the second world war.
After several chance encounters with beautiful young dancer Lise (Leanne Cope), Jerry (Robert Fairchild) falls madly in love and has to face the challenges of chasing dreams, sustaining friendships and making a seemingly impossible true love come together in Paris.
Scored gorgeously by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin, this record-setting 28 five-star review earning musical is not to be missed – find out where you can see An American in Paris in cinemas here.
