An American in Paris-October 30, 2016

An American in Paris
Wang Theatre Oct. 25-Nov. 6, 2016 

Music and Lyrics--George and Ira Gershwin
Book--Craig Lucas

Garen Scribner and Sara Esty

Although the story/plot is rather trite, the music (Gershwin), orchestrations (Tony Award for Bill Elliot), sets, lots of dancing (Much of it is ballet.) are magnificent!
