The Argyle Theatre to Present AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Beginning in September

An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy-Award-winning 1951 film, the new stage musical features a ravishing score by George and Ira Gershwin.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS will be the final show of the season for Long Island's largest year-round professional theatrical venue, The Argyle Theatre. Directed by Evan Pappas, Choreographed and Co-Directed by Shannon Lewis with musical direction by Christopher D. Littlefield, An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy-Award-winning 1951 film, the new stage musical features a ravishing score by George and Ira Gershwin and a fresh, sophisticated book by Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas.

Set in the French capital in the wake of World War II, An American in Paris tells 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 international conflict.

"After the dynamic success of Footloose at The Argyle, An American in Paris is the perfect way to continue that dynamic to end our current season. We have, yet again, assembled a first-rate team of actors, singers, and dancers that will truly entertain audiences."
