ZZ An American In Paris

Spectacularly ravishing with rhythm, romance & razzle-dazzle

SCREENING: ‘An American in Paris’ from London’s West End to the Electric Palace, Bridport.

Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war…

This breathtakingly beautiful Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the Oscar® winning MGM film, tells the impassioned story of discovering love in the ‘City of Light’.

Featuring the gorgeous music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin (including the classic hits ‘S Wonderful and I Got Rhythm), stunning designs, and show-stopping choreography.
With a record-setting 28 five-star reviews from critics, An American in Paris is coming from London’s West End to the Electric Palace.
