An American in Paris is 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 war.

One of the most sublime…'An American in Paris,' inspired by the multiple Oscar-winning 1950 musical by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin…

Review by Jennifer Farrar from Associated Press

It’s been years—decades, really—since I last saw production numbers that were infused with the kind of rich, sustained creativity that Mr. Wheeldon gives us throughout ‘An American in Paris.'

Review by Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal

A dancer is a thing of beauty, and there is beaucoup beauty in director-choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s ravishing production of 'An American in Paris,' smartly but not slavishly adapted by Craig Lucas from the 1951 MGM movie.

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

The city of light is ablaze with movement in the rhapsodic new stage adaptation of 'An American in Paris' that opened at the Palace Theater on Sunday, directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, a gifted luminary of the ballet world.
