Gigi

$45-$145

Thank heaven! A Gigi like you've never seen! Starring Vanessa Hudgens as Gigi, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's celebrated musical will play a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in an all-new production directed by Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet, the eight-time Tony-nominated Kennedy Center revival of Follies) with an entirely re-envisioned book by acclaimed British playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas ("Cranford," "Upstairs Downstairs," "Call the Midwife"). This highly anticipated, limited premiere engagement also features two-time Tony Award nominee Howard McGillin (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Anything Goes, The Phantom of the Opera) as Honore Lachaille, Corey Cott (Newsies) as Gaston Lachaille, and Steffanie Leigh (Mary Poppins) as Liane d'Exelmans.



Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a romantic musical comedy about a young woman coming of age in the magical world of La Belle Époque where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail. When she finds true love with a wealthy young playboy, both must overcome their destinies to create a future together.



With a Tony Award–winning score, Gigi features such Broadway standards as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember It Well," and "The Night They Invented Champagne." First a novella by Colette, Gigi evolved from a play starring an unknown Audrey Hepburn, to the nine-time Academy Award–winning Best Picture starring Leslie Caron, and then a Tony Award–winning Broadway musical.
