An American in Paris recently had their press night, we were lucky enough to see the post war love story and fell in love ourselves. Bob Crowley's masterful design combined with the beautiful choreography by Christopher Wheeldon makes it a triumph on stage, but don’t just take our word for it, check out what the critics thought below:
Michael Billington, The Guardian
"Musical becomes theatrical gold [...] Christopher Wheeldon’s superb show is a riot of colour and movement, with irresistible dance routines and a wealth of Gerhswin classics."
Mark Shenton, The Stage
"An instant classic [...] Fidgety Feet here explodes as an exhilarating ensemble number featuring a stageful of feet that won't stop dancing."
Quentin Letts, Daily Mail
"London's stage has a new heart-breaker [...] Little Leanne Cope, with black ink-blob hairdo and elfin face, dances and acts and sings and wows in the Broadway- originated adaptation of An American in Paris."
Sarah Crompton, Whats On Stage
"The design and the direction that give An American in Paris its unique texture and tone [...] unlike any other musical on the London stage: sumptuously beautiful and heartfelt, it has a romantic pizzazz all of its own."
Ann Treneman, The Times
"Balletic choreography that at times takes your breath away [...] It's got starlight, it's got sweet dreams and, yes, it's got rhythm too. You almost feel you couldn't ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace, a lightness that would out-soufflé even Julia Child, and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long."
