I got rhythm, I got music!

It’s hard not to start dancing in your seat when you hear memorable Gershwin songs accompanied by beautiful dancing. An American in Paris is perfect, traditional theater. A wonderful night out to enjoy song and dance and let your cares drift away while melting into a love story.

This is the first national tour for the new Tony Award®-winning musical, An American in Paris. We are so fortunate to have this tour come through St. Paul.

After World War II, American soldier, Jerry Mulligan wanting to rebuild his life decides to stay in Paris and pursue his artistic dreams. By chance, he meets a mysterious French ballerina named Lise and is instantly love struck.

Like any true love story, there are lots of twists and I want to say love triangle but it’s more of a square. 😉 ONLY showing through Sunday! Get your tickets by clicking HERE. Enjoy a few more photos below from this wonderful production.

The New York Times raves, “An American in Paris is a triumph! Pure joy!” and Wall Street Journal declares, “Once you’ve seen it, you’ll find it hard to settle for less ever again.” Don’t miss this stunning Broadway hit when it arrives in Saint Paul on its first national tour!
