An American in Paris, with a classic Gershwin score, made its official Broadway debuts last night at the Palace Theatre — as did the production's fancy-footed pair of stars, Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope. They play American soldier Jerry Mulligan and the beautiful French Lise Dassin, who find love amid the heartbreak following World War II. Take a look as TheaterMania chats with the performers about venturing into the world of musical theater for the first time alongside proud Broadway vets who are excited to be witnessing this historic production.
