An American In Paris is pure gold! Opens to a roaring ovation at the Dr. Phillips Center!
An American In Paris opened last night to a sold out crowd at the Dr. Phillips Center here in Orlando, FL. I was in attendance and wanted to pass along my opinions about the show as well as how you can get tickets to this show before it’s gone!
Growing up in the Washington, DC area, I was privileged enough to be able to view quite a view Broadway shows. Most of them I knew from word of mouth, a song I had heard in choir, or was just interested in. Last night I will say that I had no idea what An American in Paris was about. While speaking with most in attendance they also had no real clue what the show was about. Well let’s jump right into that now.
An American In Paris is a classic love story that is set in Paris at the end of WWII. The story revolves around an American soldier (Jerry) who decided to stay in Paris to enhance his passion for painting.
Jerry has no friends, no where to live and no direction until he walks into a pub where he meets Adam and Henri who help shape Jerry into finding his career, passion and love.
Jerry meets Lise, a ballerina, and falls in love. Little does Jerry know Lise is engaged to Henri and is also being wooed by Adam. The storyline follows the main characters as they put together a ballet and ultimately find out that they are more connected than they had ever knew before!
The show is full of amazing music, breathtaking dancing, and a storyline that many can really relate to! After speaking to the people sitting around me last night, everyone agreed that even tho we didn’t know much about An American In Paris, that we would highly recommend it to our friends and family!
An American In Paris runs tonight until December 18th before heading to Tampa next week! To learn more about the show and how to purchase tickets to see An American In Paris, check out the link here!
Overall, the show has something for everyone! Music that will leave your toes tapping, dancing that will make you smile, and a storyline that will live on for ages. Make sure you get to the Dr. Phillips Center before the show is gone!
