An American In Paris (Photos)
Based off of the hit film of the same title starring Gene Kelly, An American In Paris has returned to Broadway this spring! The musical tells the story of World War II Army vet Jerry Mulligan who chooses a new life in Paris over returning home following the war. Jerry falls hard for a young Parisian shop girl, named Lise, who is also an incredible dancer. However, it’s not so easy to win over Lisa with Jerry’s friends Adam, a Jewish American composer, and Henri, a Parisian aristocrat, also seeking her love. The musical stars Robert Fairchild as Jerry Mulligan, Leanne Cope as Lisa, Brandon Uranowitz as Adam and Max von Essen as Henri. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at An American In Paris on Broadway!
