THE MOST ELEGANT, EXUBERANT AND TUNEFUL MUSICAL IN TOWN.
Even a lovelorn song such as But Not For Me is a sheer delight in this glorious musical.
Michael Arditti, SUNDAY EXPRESS
THIS LAVISH MUSICAL IS SUCH A TONIC IT SHOULD PROBABLY BE AVAILABLE ON PRESCRIPTION.
It’s got rhythm, lashings of gorgeous Gershwin melody and, above all, Christopher Wheeldon’s witty choreography. ROBERT FAIRCHILD AND LEANNE COPE ARE UTTERLY BEGUILING.
Sarah Hemming, FINANCIAL TIMES
IT’S A SPECIAL SHOW - TRULY IT IS.
You almost feel you couldn’t ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long. The set and costume designs by Bob Crowley are magnificent.
Anne Treneman, THE TIMES
THE BEST-LOOKING AND BEST-DANCED MUSICAL IN TOWN IS AN INSTANT CLASSIC.
Christopher Wheeldon shows an intricate command of both narrative and bold stage pictures, working with book writer Craig Lucas and designer Bob Crowley respectively. Together they ingeniously conjure a gorgeous, completely enveloping portrait of post-war Paris. IT IS SHEER MUSICAL THEATRE MAGIC.
Mark Shenton, THE STAGE
UNLIKE ANY OTHER MUSICAL ON THE LONDON STAGE.
sumptuously beautiful and heartfelt, it has a romantic pizzazz all of its own.
Sarah Crompton, WHATSONSTAGE.COM
MAGIC ON STAGE.
The classic Gene Kelly movie has been transformed into a joyous, colourful and heart-warming musical.
Eleanor Bley Griffiths, RADIO TIMES
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.
Neil Norman, DAILY EXPRESS
SOMETHING TRULY WONDERFUL.
David Jays, The Sunday Times
PURE FEEL-FABULOUS BROADWAY.
Both direction and the astonishing choreography lie in the hands of our own Christopher Wheeldon, and his ability to use dance sequences for pure dramatic purpose and tension, and to break them with musical-theatre skill into moments of dialogue, is stunning. Everything is done to millimetre perfection and IT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY.
Libby Purves, THEATRECAT.COM
GO AND SEE IT, IMMEDIATELY!
This show is fabulous and creative in every sense: visually it is sensational, with costumes to die for - glamour, glitz and bespoke outfits, all immaculately presented, with the finest attention to detail. An American in Paris is an instant classic that took us on a journey far away from our present state, to a world of magic and dreams.
Carys Jones, ENTERTAINMENT-FOCUS.COM

A JOYOUSLY FUN NIGHT OF MUSICAL THEATRE.
An American in Paris feels simultaneously classic and breezy-fresh.
Steve Hogarty, CITY AM
I DEFY ANYONE TO LEAVE THE DOMINION THEATRE WITHOUT A SPRING IN THEIR STEP.
Christopher Wheeldon’s reimagined version of the Oscar® winning film is filled with so much graceful and gorgeous dance, you’ll be left thinking you’ve been immersed in your very own dream sequence by the end of the show.
Nicky Sweetland, LONDON WEEKLY NEWS
THIS IS 'THE ONE'!
An American in Paris is a thing of absolute beauty, a visually breathtaking musical which explodes in a luxurious dance-led staging the like of which London hasn't seen in decades, iced with mellow Gershwin tunes. If we could give six stars, we would.
Johnny Fox, LONDONIST.COM
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS TRULY SOARS.
The ace up this show’s sleeve is how it combines the music of Gershwin with the most beautiful choreography I have ever witnessed on any stage on either side of the Atlantic.
Simon Button, ATTITUDE
A RAVISHING, LIFE-AFFIRMING JOY.
Judi Herman, JEWISH RENAISSANCE
An American in Paris is a dance musical with grace, grit and Gershwin: a winning combination if ever there was one.
GLORIOUS AND GROUNDBREAKING.
This modern day masterpiece is a feast for the eyes and ears. If you don’t think it sounds like your cup of tea (like I did), I can’t urge you enough to give it a try.

It will capture your heart and make you believe in love all over again.
Harry Cunningham, TAKE5THEATRE.CO.UK
A SUMPTUOUS STAGE VERSION OF THE CLASSIC MGM MUSICAL.
The kind of grace and glamour that makes you want to quit your job and take up beginners’ ballet lessons. It’s the same aesthetic that La La Land channeled to irresistible effect.
Lucy Brooks, CULTUREWHISPER.COM
