Jerry Mulligan is an American GI who dreams of making it as a painter in a city reborn after the War. And following a chance encounter with a talented young dancer, Lise, An American In Paris sees the streets of the French capital become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war…

The cast is led by Ashley Day (as Jerry Mulligan) and Leanne Cope (as Lise Dassin) with Haydn Oakley as Henri Baurel, Zoë Rainey as Milo Davenport, David Seadon-Young as Adam Hochberg and Julie Legrand as Madame Baurel.

An American In Paris transferred to the Palace Theatre on Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the 2015/16 season, including four Tony® Awards.
