EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: The Quest for Love in Broadway's An American in Paris
The show's Tony-nominated stars, including Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, sit down to discuss the romances of the new Gershwin musical.
At the heart of the Tony-winning musical An American in Paris are three different love stories, all involving the same woman. She is the beautiful ballerina Lise Dassin, played by Tony nominee Leanne Cope; the men vying for her attention are American G.I. Jerry Mulligan (Drama Desk Award winner Robert Fairchild), songwriter Adam Hochberg (Tony nominee Brandon Uranowitz), and would-be-song-and-dance-man Henri Baurel (Tony nominee Max von Essen). The quartet of performers recently sat down to discuss the show's quest for affection, and how the would-be romances form the beating heart at the story's center.
