The musical of “An American in Paris” is adopted from its namesake movie, which claimed six Academy Awards including the “Best Film” in the 1950s. The musical was named as one of the “Ten Greatest Movie Musicals” by the American Film Institute. It has become one of the most awarded Broadway musicals. Thanks to its perfect plot and classic music, it won the Tony Award for Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Orchestrations, the highest award for American dramas and musicals. The production of London’s West End made it win Best Theatre Choreographer and Best Set Design of Lawrence Oliver Award.
We first introduced the musical of “An American in Paris” into China in June 2019, and staged it for 40 performances at Poly theaters in cities of Nanjing, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenyang and Zhengzhou. We also invested in London’s West End’s production of the musical in 2017.
