An American in Paris Brings the Romance of Ballet to a Broadway Audience

Seeing this balletic musical will be a whole new experience, says book writer Craig Lucas. logo

The cast of An American in Paris is led by professional dancers Leanne Cope and Robert Fairchild and features a host of Broadway favorites — like Max von Essen and Veanne Cox. The new show's creative team is hoping that the worlds of dance and Broadway will also merge in their audience, with the show's world-class ballet drawing one crowd and delightful tunes of George and Ira Gershwin appealing to another. At a recent meet-and-greet event, the show's cast and creatives gushed about all the exciting aspects of this new musical.
