The enthusiastic dance numbers are backed by a much-loved score composed by George and Ira Gershwin, and includes songs like ‘I Got Rhythm’, ‘S Wonderful’, ‘But Not For Me’ and ‘Love is Here to Stay’.

It’s a lively, lavish and delightfully romantic production that has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. After premiering to widespread critical acclaim at the Palace Theatre on Broadway in 2015, it has gone on to play on the West End, Tokyo, and Beijing – scoring four Tony Awards, including Best Choreography, along the way. 

An American in Paris has been adapted for the stage by one of the world’s most in-demand choreographers [Christopher Wheeldon] and we have a great and long-standing relationship with Christopher. It’s exciting to be collaborating with him again, but this time on a musical, and we welcome the opportunity for a number of our dancers to perform in this incredible production and broaden their skills as artists.
