Here’s a review about the first ever Broadway show I saw when we went to the Big Apple in April this year. Thanks to the Broadway Direct Digital Lottery I got a ticket to An American In Paris on our first whole day in the city, so after a morning with a great view over NYC and an afternoon at Jimmy Fallon, I headed down to the Palace Theatre for the 8 pm show.

An American In Paris The Musical is inspired by the 1951 film on the same name and tells the story of Jerry Mulligan (played by Garen Scribner), an American soldier, who decides to rebuild his life at the end of WW II in Paris after a chance encounter with the beautiful young dancer Lise (Leanne Cope).

The show was nominated for 12 Tony Awards (and won 4 of them) and after seeing the show I definitely get why. In between all the modern productions, which I love, An American In Paris is more of a traditional Broadway musical. Or, in fact I’d even say it’s more of a dance show with some musical in between. The choreography is just breathtaking – and delivered with such perfection that the songs sometimes fall behind.

The cast was brilliant – overall. The two leads obviously were amazing, both their dancing and also their singing – considering that they are professional ballet dancers and not trained musical actors in that sense, you wouldn’t necessarily expect them to be top notch singers, but we’re on Broadway so, yep, they delivered. I was especially looking forward to seeing Max von Essen (thanks, Snapchat) and loved his performance as Henri.

I really enjoyed the show – probably because it is a little different to others shows in Broadway and very dance/ballett heavy – and I am looking forward to seeing it when it opens at the Dominion Theatre in London in March next year.
