A new national tour of the Broadway musical An American in Paris launches January 11 in Yakima, Washington, at the Capitol Theatre.
Directed by Jeffrey B. Moss with new choreography by Bob Richard, the cast is led by Branson Bice as Jerry Mulligan and Fiona Claire Huber as Lise Dassin, with Daniel Cardenas as Henri Baurel, TJ Lamando as Adam Hochberg, Bella Muller as Milo Davenport, Jesse Graham Galas as Madame Baurel, Chris Carsten as Monsieur Baurel, Kyle James Adam as Mr. Z, and Maureen Duke as Olga.

The 2015 Broadway production was directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon.
The tour also features set design by Randel Wright with video design by Jon Infante, lightning by Kirk Bookman, costumes by Keith Nielsen, and casting by Alison Franck.
