About this show

Thank heaven! A Gigi like you've never seen! Starring Vanessa Hudgens as Gigi, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's celebrated musical plays a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in an all-new production directed by Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet, the eight-time Tony-nominated Kennedy Center revival of Follies) with an entirely re-envisioned book by acclaimed British playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas.

Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a romantic musical comedy about a young woman coming of age in the magical world of La Belle Époque where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail. When she finds true love with a wealthy young playboy, both must overcome their destinies to create a future together.

With a Tony Award-winning score, Gigi features such Broadway standards as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember It Well," and "The Night They Invented Champagne." First a novella by Colette, Gigi evolved from a play starring a then-unknown Audrey Hepburn, to the nine-time Academy Award-winning Best Picture starring Leslie Caron, and then a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

Recommended for age 10 and up.
