A LAVISH, ROMANTIC SHOW.
Based on the uplifting film that was such a spectacular vehicle for Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, in the hands of director Christopher Wheeldon it mixes grace and elegance with jazzy verve.
The big numbers are visually ravishing and Bob Crowley’s sumptuous designs evoke the spirit of Paris and the boldness of modern art.

‘S WONDERFUL MUSICAL OF THE YEAR!
Just sit back and let its beauty and joy sweep over you.
Steve Allen, LBC
A dance musical with grace, grit and Gershwin (a winning combination if ever there was one), An American in Paris is an explosion of movement; even the design, with Paris conjured in line drawings that are sketched into Parisian landmarks before our eyes.
A VISUAL SPLENDOUR THAT FEW MUSICALS CAN MATCH.
The entire edifice is so beautifully engineered that there isn’t a weak spot or a dull moment. Christopher Wheeldon’s choreography is of the highest calibre, delivering jazzy solos, swooning duets and vibrant ensemble pieces with inventive style, especially the utterly brilliant Fidgety Feet.
Neil Norman, DAILY EXPRESS

IF WE COULD GIVE SIX STARS, WE WOULD!
This is 'the one'. An American in Paris is a thing of absolute beauty, a visually breathtaking musical, a luxurious dance-led staging the like of which London hasn't seen in decades, iced with mellow Gershwin tunes.
Johnny Fox, LONDONIST.COM

THIS DREAMY BROADWAY HYMN
TO THE POWER OF DANCE.

A WHIRL OF COLOUR AND IMAGERY.
Based on the 1951 Gene Kelly film, the stage musical reframes the romance as a dream of postwar optimism, while dancing through the wonders of the Gershwin back catalogue.
Zoë Anderson, THE INDEPENDENT
FINALLY, A SHOW THAT TRULY DESERVES
A STANDING OVATION.
