I have been involved in An American In Paris from the very start. This musical, its cast, production team, as well as the producers, have been one of the most thrilling experiences of my life. From the opening night in Paris at Theatre du Chatelet, to opening night here in New York at the Palace, yes, the Palace and then the opening night at the Dominion Theatre in London, it has been a truly remarkable ride of a lifetime.
The wonderful news now is that you can VIEW An American In Paris in your home or in a local cinema near you! Starting September 20th and 23rd, AAIP will be screened at a movie theatre near you.
This is a remarkable film of the London production directed by Tony Award winning Christopher Wheeldon, staring Robbie Fairchild and Leanne Cope, from the original cast. If you prefer a home viewing experience, you are in luck. There are two opportunities: 1. Starting in October you can pull it up on a streaming platform provided by Broadway H.D. Or 2. Starting November 3rd through the 23rd, AAIP will be one of four Broadway Musicals featured on PBS’s Great Performances.
Please don’t miss what I believe to be one of the most moving, poignant musicals ever.
See you at the theatre.
