AN AMERICAN IN PARIS 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 into perfect harmony with unforgettable songs from George and Ira Gershwin in the show that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2015 season! The New York Times raves, “AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is a triumph! Pure joy!” and The Wall Street Journal declares, “Once you’ve seen it, you’ll find it hard to settle for less ever again.” Don’t miss this stunning Broadway hit when it arrives in Fort Worth on its first national tour!

Special rates available for groups of 10+



The lovely, fluid ensemble of dancers brings a unison of movement and music, delivered by a rousing orchestra. The set and costumes are evocative and clever, with lots of glitter and plumage. The tour can't pull out every visual trick that was used on Broadway, but in a way, that's to the good as it  keeps focus on the compelling tale of how difficult it can be to wend a way from darkness to the hope of love and light.
