An American In Paris

The Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical about love, hope, and living your dreams, has taken the West End by storm, with standing ovations from the public and a record-setting 28 five-star reviews from UK critics!

With Gershwin tunes, stunning designs and show-stopping choreography, this beautiful hit musical is inspired by the Oscar® winning MGM film and tells the impassioned story of an American GI discovering art, friendship and love in the ‘City of Light’ in 1945.
Experience ‘London’s most joyous musical!’ (Playbill) before it ends on 6 January 2018! 

What Is An American In Paris About?

An American In Paris is about an American GI who decided to stay and live in France as the WWII ends. He chooses Paris - a city that is bursting with possibilities and dreams - to get started in his dream career as a painter. He then meets a beautiful and mysterious Parisian ballet dancer, whom he can't help but fall in love with. 

What is most enjoyable about An American In Paris is the ballet-musical-theatre fusion, which brings together the beauty of the ballet with the action and storyline of a musical. The stage design is very modern and striking, transporting the audience to the heart of Paris and the quai of the river Seine.

  • Superb

    23 November 2017

    Probably the best stage performances I have ever seen. Dancing and singing superb. Lighting and stage design absolutely extraordinary, sometimes a little to much to take in! Who could ask for anything more!! Thank you.

  • Fabulous Production

    23 November 2017

    Incredibly high standard of choreography, scenery, costumes, and music. Very uplifting and great to see so many performers at the peak of their abilities. If there is a slight criticism it would be that the dialogue is a bit slow at times -but bear with it because the second half is fabulous.

  • Wonderful show

    23 November 2017

    A very engaging show full of wonderful dancing and great Gershwin music. There is a lot of ballet- more than singing- so definitely one for dance lovers. The stage design and backdrops were brilliant too- the speed and fluidity of the many set changes was amazing. We loved it!

  • Poor and boring. A shadow of the original.

    23 November 2017

    We were in good stall seats. Y 35 and 35 with a good view at our level. But.... it was difficult to hear many of the spoken exchanges. The songs could be heard but at times not the lyrics. It moved at a slow pace and as a result the plot wasn’t always apparent and the music wasn’t all that I remembered. No punchy songs or tunes and certainly not what I remembered from years ago. Had someone fiddled with Gershwin arrangements? I too almost left at half time but stuck it out. The second half was better but only just. The best thing was the scenery and I really liked the way it changed using a lot of clever technology. I don’t understand why this production got rave reviews and still does. I wouldn’t recommend it at all. Even the ballet was how shall I say, not clumsy but didn’t seem to be of the best quality and went on too long. I do think I would have much rather tried something else.

  • "Gorgeous blend of ballet and musical theatre. The classic Fifties film gets a stage version and the results are lavish and romantic"

    Evening Standard

  • "Christopher Wheeldon’s superb show is a riot of colour and movement, with irresistible dance routines and a wealth of Gerhswin classics"

  • "The best-looking and best-danced musical in town is an instant classic"

    The Stage

  • "An American in Paris is unlike any other musical on the London stage: sumptuously beautiful and heartfelt, it has a romantic pizzazz all of its own."
