Eager to begin his life anew after the brutality of combat, World War II Army veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses

newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. With the assistance of fellow ex-pat Milo

Davenport, a wealthy American with a past she wishes to forget, Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets

Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret. Soon it becomes clear that Jerry’s friends—Adam, a Jewish

American composer, and Henri, a Parisian aristocrat—also vie for Lise’s love. This romantic tangle can only be

untied through the miracle of dance set to some of the greatest music and lyrics ever written. A classic American

film about young souls in Paris has been reimagined for the Broadway stage of the 21st

century.

The new musical, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, has targeted Broadway for the spring of 2015 following its world

premiere in December, 2014 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. It will be directed and choreographed by

Christopher Wheeldon, making his Broadway directing debut. Featuring music and lyrics by George Gershwin

and Ira Gershwin and a book by Tony and Pulitzer Prize nominee Craig Lucas, the creative team also includes

Tony Award winners Bob Crowley (sets and costumes), Natasha Katz (lighting) and Scott Lehrer (sound) with a

musical score adapted and supervised by Rob Fisher. Bartlett Sher is creative consultant. Based on the Academy

Award winning film inspired by the 1928 orchestral composition by George Gershwin, AN AMERICAN IN

PARIS brings this classic tale to Broadway for the first time.
