Live Cinema: An American in Paris — The Musical

  • Gesa Power House Theatre 111 North 6th Avenue Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

An American G.I.’s chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer in Paris becomes the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war.

This breathtakingly-beautiful Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the Oscar-winning MGM film, tells the impassioned story of discovering love in the City of Light in 1945. It features the gorgeous music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin, stunning designs, and show-stopping choreography by Christopher Wheeldon (The Royal Ballet's Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).

With a record-setting 28 five-star reviews from critics, An American in Paris is an “old-fashioned, big-hearted spare-no-expense Broadway romance” (The Wall Street Journal).

There will be one intermission.
