Inspired by the Academy-Award winning film, An American in Paris features music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, a book by Craig Lucas and direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon. American in Paris has also won four Drama Desk Awards; four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Musical; the Drama League Award for Best Musical; three Fred and Adele Astaire Awards; and two Theatre World Awards.
An American In Paris, according to press notes, "is 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 war." The production opened on April 12, 2015, to widespread critical acclaim.
