An American in Paris Musical Now at Segerstrom Center #scfta

Post by contributing writer, Angela Camacho, who attended a media preview. 

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS musical debuted this week on April 25th at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. This musical is the new Tony Award®-winning musical about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. Acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award®-winner Christopher Wheeldon brings the magic and romance of Paris with songs from George and Ira Gershwin that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2014/15 season.

A classic is born! AN AMERICAN IN PARIS was sensational and it transported me to a world filled with romance, friendship, music, art, and ballet. The dreamlike scenes were continuously changing and were unbelievable. I was often mesmerized and lost in a trance in the story.  The "I Got Rhythm" performance was astounding (my favorite part of the show). The dance moves were extraordinary and breathtaking. The audience was truly captivated. It is no surprise this new musical received an astounding fourteen Tony nominations. The audience gave the incredible cast a standing ovation. This musical is simply wonderful and a MUST-SEE! It will be in town through May 7, 2017!
