An American in Paris Tickets

After captivating audiences on Broadway, achieving four Tony Awards and becoming the most acclaimed musical of the year, An American in Paris has now crossed the Atlantic for a run at the Dominion Theatre in London’s West End.

With its roots in the timeless ‘extended symphonic tone poem’ by the Gershwins, this musical classic has been thrust into the 21st century with breath-taking choreography and direction by Christopher Wheeldon, as well as state of the art design by the acclaimed team of Bob Crowley (costume and set design), Natasha Katz (lighting) and Jon Weston (sound), with projections provided by 59 Productions.

An American in Paris follows the fate of former American soldier Jerry Mulligan as he attempts to develop his passion for painting in the world’s most romantic city, along with a little help from his fellow artist friends, struggling composer and pianist Adam Hochberg and singer Henri Baurel.

When Jerry stumbles across the mysterious Lise Bouvier he is instantly enraptured. Add into the mix a lonely heiress and some fierce competition, and you are left with the timeless gripping tale of pain and anguish while trying to grasp hold of true love.

Heavily influenced by the 1951 Academy Award winning motion picture, this new production of An American in Paris is as ground-breaking today as Gene Kelly’s magnificent performance was then.

The Tony-nominated Leanne Cope reprises her role from Broadway as Lise, opposite Ashley Day as Jerry Mulligan, while Haydn Oakley (The Book of Mormon, Sunset Boulevard) takes the role of Henri Baurel, Zoë Rainey (Wicked, The Winter's Tale) as Milo Davenport, Jane Asher (Blithe Spirit, Alfie) as Madame Baurel and David Seadon-Young (Ghost) as Adam Hochberg.

This has become one of the hottest West End tickets of the year, with the show having opened at the Dominion Theatre on 4th March 2017 to rave reviews, so don't miss out.

Performance dates: 27 Apr 2018 - 06 Jan 2018

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes (including an interval)

Age recommendation: Suitable for ages 6+

Special notice: With some of the finest choreography you are likely to see on the West End this year, anyone looking to be dazzled by some fancy footwork while enjoying a bit of a tearjerker should make sure to check this out. Tickets are flying out so be sure not to miss out on this truly beautiful show.

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: With very few obstructions, despite their angled view, tickets for seats at the sides of the stalls can offer great value for money. With a comparatively high stage and a well raked layout, tickets for seats towards the back are preferable to those in the very front rows if you do not want to be craning your neck, however the circle begins to overhang around a third of the way from the back, restricting the view of the very rear of the stage.

I had no knowledge of the show before going to watch. Throughouly enjoyed the story and the acting was beautiful. The dancing was incredible just a shame we missed some of the footwork by sitting right at the front. Would definitely watch the show again but further back.

The show itself is something that one can either love or hate. There is a lot of dancing considering that it is advertised as a musical. During the dancing parts there is obviously no singing (and if there is, the actors hardly have any breath left to make the sound carry). I liked the play but I didn't love it. I even caught myself checking my watch Every now and then.

Good show with a wonderful cast who are highly talented dancers, although lacks a bit on the range of music in the show. Really recommend for dancers and dance lovers! But for me as a big MT fan, i was slightly disappointed musically.
