Christopher Wheeldon’s multi award-winning new Broadway musical is coming to London’s Dominion Theatre next spring.

Inspired by the Oscar® winning film and featuring the timeless music and lyrics of George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin with book by Craig Lucas, An American in Paris will open in the capital on Tuesday 21 March 2017.

Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war...


An American in Paris features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most iconic songs including I Got Rhythm, ‘S Wonderful, and They Can't Take That Away From Me, together with George Gershwin’s sweeping compositions including Concerto in F and An American in Paris.

Fresh from originating their roles on Broadway, Robert Fairchild (a New York City Ballet Principal dancer) will play Jerry Mulligan and British Royal Ballet dancer Leanne Cope will play Lise Dassin.

Christopher Wheeldon’s reinvention of the MGM film, which starred Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, premiered in 2014 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris to ecstatic reviews before transferring to The Palace Theatre on Broadway, where it now in its second hit year, becoming the most awarded musical of the 2015/16 season, including four Tony® Awards. A major North American tour begins later this year.
