AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Returns To UK Cinemas This May

Trafalgar Releasing are pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for the return of multiple-award-winning production An American in Paris: The Musical to cinemas throughout the UK on 7 May 2019. The film went on to achieve a place on the top ten box office of all Event Cinema releases in the UK in 2018. Book tickets here!

This rendition of An American in Paris premiered in 2014 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris to ecstatic reviews before transferring to the Palace Theatre on Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the 2015/16 season, including four Tony® Awards.

With the gorgeous music and lyrics of George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin (including the classic hits 'S Wonderful and I Got Rhythm), book by Craig Lucas and direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, this breathtakingly beautiful new musical is inspired by the Oscar® winning MGM film and tells the impassioned story of discovering love in the 'City of Light' in 1945.

Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war...

The film stars Tony Award nominees, New York City Ballet principle dancer Robert Fairchild as Jerry Mulligan and British Royal Ballet dancer Leanne Cope as Lise Dassin, reprising their roles from the original Broadway production, and a company of over 50 actors, dancers and musicians, including Haydn Oakley as Henri Baurel, Zoë Rainey as Milo Davenport, David Seadon-Young as Adam Hochberg and Jane Asher as Madame Baurel.

Trafalgar Releasing also recently announced that Lincoln Center Theater's production of The King and I - starring Kelli O'Hara and Ken Watanabe, and filmed at the London Palladium - will return to UK cinemas on 4 April 2019. Book tickets here!
