An American in Paris

The Broadway and West End mega hit lands in Australia!

 

In a ground-breaking collaboration, GWB Entertainment and The Australian Ballet have announced that the ravishing musical, An American in Paris, will have its keenly-awaited Australian premiere in 2022.

 

Hailed as a tour de force for its inventive choreography, the four-time Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical tells the entrancing story of a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl, set against the iconic backdrop of the most romantic city in the world.

 

Inspired by the Academy Award®-winning MGM film, acclaimed director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris alive on stage with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including I Got Rhythm, S’Wonderful, But Not For Me and They Can’t Take That Away From Me.

 

GWB Entertainment and The Australian Ballet have also announced that charismatic Broadway and West End leads Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope will reprise their show-stopping turns as the American GI Jerry Mulligan and the young Parisian dancer Lise Dassin in Australia, with two of the country’s leading lights Cameron Holmes and Dimity Azoury from The Australian Ballet, to alternate in the lead roles.

 

An ensemble of 33 exceptionally talented dancers, singers and actors will also include Australian theatre royalty Anne Wood as Madame Baurel, David Whitney (The Merry Widow, West Side Story on Sydney Harbour) as Monsieur Baurel, Ashleigh Rubenach (Cry-Baby, Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical) as Milo Davenport, Jonathan Hickey (Sweeney Todd, Aspects of Love) as Adam Hochberg, and Sam Ward (The Ten Tenors, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Henri Baurel.

 

The Australian production of An American in Paris will premiere in Brisbane in January 2022 before seasons in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.
