An American in Paris has got it all: Comedy, dancing, faultless and visually stunning staging. This is a classic musical theatre experience and a standout West End show. Go see it! There is so much to see that I'd gladly see it again.

Having resided in London for the last 2 years and being spoilt with the West End, I was keen to see An American in Paris due to Christopher Wheeldon's involvement. I loved his choreography for Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella. While his group scene in...More
