American in Paris, An Lyrics
This musical won a Tony Award, and this is a continuation of and rethinking of the movie of 1957, which also won the award from Academy. It was opened on Broadway just recently, in April 2015 (after preliminary running in Theatre du Chatelet in France). Christopher Wheeldon, who works here at the same time as the director and choreographer, took the responsible task of coordinating over 25 different singers, dancers and actors, among whom the leaders are R. Fairchild, L. Cope, V. Cox, J. Paice, B. Uranowitz & M. Essen.
Positive and open, like the film itself, it charges by sunny energy, again settling a simple truth in our hearts – that you should always try to stay positive and think the same way, despite what is happening around you and then the positive attitude should enter your life.
G. & I. Gershwin wrote five songs, and the orchestra played four more. Craig Lucas wrote the book for the musical (he is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize). Bob Crowley (possessor of Tony Award) was responsible for the costumes, N. Katz – for lighting and J. Weston – for sound. Rob Fisher & Christopher Austin are responsible for the performance of music and conducting, under the coordination of Todd Ellison, and Brad Haak was music director.
Release date: 1951
