Based on the novel by Colette

In February, we will journey to Paris, the city of love, at the turn of the 20th Century, a time when love and marriage did not always go hand in hand. There we will meet the winsome star of Lerner and Loeweís beloved classic, GIGI. The renowned movie swept the Oscars in 1959, winning Best Picture, and the stage version boasts even more songs, more tears and more romance. Youíll fall in love with this Tony winning score brought to life by our heavenly Reprise orchestra.
