Broadway’s An American in Paris Comes To The Cinema

Broadway’s An American in Paris Comes To The Cinema
With audiences clamoring for musical masterpieces, like La La Land and The Greatest Showman, a new film of the Academy Award-winning, iconic musical from George and Ira Gershwin, An American in Paris, is landing on silver screens across America this September 20 and 23 with tickets on sale now!

Featuring the unforgettable music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin (including quintessential hits like ‘S Wonderful and I Got Rhythm) and book by Craig Lucas, this breathtakingly beautiful new musical draws upon essence of Gene Kelly’s nimble footwork in the Oscar® winning MGM film that tells the impassioned story of discovering love in the ‘City of Light’ in 1945.

“I am so honored and privileged to share our movie of An American in Paris with North America!” said leading actor Robert Fairchild who plays Jerry Mulligan. “It’s the culmination of 5 years of passion, creativity, and hard work and I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally being released!”

An American in Paris is directed and choreographed by internationally renowned, British-born Christopher Wheeldon, the 2015 Tony® Award winner for Best Choreography for this production. This new iteration premiered in 2014, at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, to ecstatic reviews before transferring to the Palace Theatre on Broadway, where it became the most awarded musical of the 2015/16 season, including four Tony® Awards. Musical theater lovers across North America will finally be able to experience the magic of the hit musical, direct from London’s West End, in their local movie theater this fall.

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…

The film stars former principle dancer for the New York City Ballet Robert Fairchild as Jerry Mulligan, who is said to heavily embody the unrivaled Gene Kelly (Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris) more than anyone ever has in this role, and British Royal Ballet dancer Leanne Cope as Lise Dassin reprising their Tony-nominated roles from the original Broadway production. They’re joined by a company of over 50 actors, dancers and musicians including Haydn Oakley as Henri Baurel, Zoë Rainey as Milo Davenport, David Seadon-Young as Adam Hochberg, and Jane Asher as Madame Baurel. The musical score is adapted, arranged and supervised by Rob Fisher with orchestrations by Christopher Austin and Bill Elliott; dance arrangements by Sam Davis; musical supervision by Todd Ellison; and musical direction by John Rigby. The set and costumes are designed by celebrated West End and Broadway designer Bob Crowley (The Audience; Mary Poppins) with projections by prominent British designers 59 Productions (War Horse; London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony), lighting by Natasha Katz and sound by Jon Weston.
