AN AMERICAN IN PARIS

“Just about everything in this happily dance-drunk show moves with a spring in its step . . .” The New York Times

Here’s your chance to get tickets to one of the hottest shows on Broadway. Join us for a performance of the critically acclaimed, Tony Award-winning musical An American in Paris.

Set immediately following the end of World War II, the musical unfolds in recently liberated Paris. However, amidst the celebrations, the shadow of occupation still hangs over the city and winds through the production.

Following the performance—and in commemoration of the anniversary of Kristallnacht—a special talkback will explore post World War II themes inherent in the musical. The panel will include members of the company, as well as Cantor Shira Lissek of Park Avenue Synagogue, whose family has direct ties to the city portrayed in the show.
