An American in Paris

Our work

The ArtsLink is currently building the education and participation strategy for An American in Paris, which opens at the Dominion Theatre in March 2017. 

In October we launched '5 steps to live theatre evaluation', a scheme of work for drama students visiting the production. 

In late 2016, we will be releasing music and dance resources. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of some exciting partnerships.

About An American in Paris

Prepare to be swept away by the breathless romance and dazzling spectacle of Broadway’s triumphant, Tony® Award-winning hit musical as it comes to London with the original stars…

Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war...

Experience the theatrical event of 2017 as this stunning reimagining of the Oscar® winning film (acclaimed by The New York Times as “a perfect integration of dance, romance and classic Gershwin”) arrives at the West End’s beautifully refurbished Dominion Theatre from 4 March, featuring the original, award-winning Broadway stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope. An exceptional company of 50 actors, dancers and musicians also includes Jane Asher as Madame Baurel.
Directed and choreographed by Olivier and Tony® Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, this celebrated production played a sold out, world premiere engagement at the Théàtre du Châtelet in Paris before transferring triumphantly to Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the year.
