The new Broadway musical An American in Paris, which begins previews March 13, has announced a general rush-ticket policy. The production will officially open April 12 at the Palace Theatre.

Beginning tomorrow, with the first preview, a limited amount of general rush tickets for performances on the same day will be available for purchase at the box office. Rush tickets are $32 each including a facility fee, are limited to two per person, and are subject to the availability of each particular day.

An American in Paris is directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon. Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, the musical features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas.
