15 Dec An American in Paris…
What a challenge it was to adapt such a popular and successful musical film into a stage production that would make us all want to go back in time to a period rich in elegance and style! Tony Award-nominated playwright Craig Lucas rose to the challenge and with Christopher Wheeldon, who is both choreographer and director of the production, they are filling the Théâtre du Châtelet and reaping the praise that just keeps pouring in.
The humour, wit and irony of this classic story is given a fresh flavour with dazzling and extravagant costumes and new orchestrations of Ira and George Gerswins’ original musical score and a cast that deliver the story directly from the heart. The production was simply spot on target from the opening lights to the final bow.
A must see if you can get a seat!
