BWW Review: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Exudes Rhythm and Sparkle at the PantagesBWW Review: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Exudes Rhythm and Sparkle at the Pantages
by Don Grigware - Mar 27, 2017

Parisian charm is precious, incomparable. Even though the action of An American in Paris takes place in 1945 after World War II had taken its toll, it is still lively, colorful and full of breathtaking romantic excitement. Fans of the 1951 film with Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron will not be disappointed because the choreography of the live musical by director Christopher Wheeldon is magnetic as are the leading players Garen Scribner as Jerry Mulligan and Sara Esty as Lise Dassin, both ballet dancers. If you love great dancing, that is reason enough to see An American in Paris currently at the Hollywood Pantages through April 9. (more...)
