AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at the Dominion Theatre

May 8, 2017

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at the Dominion Theatre is the musical to see in London’s West End this season. Inspired by the movie Christopher Wheeldon has choreographed and directed a theatrical masterpiece. The set and costume design by Bob Crowley is legendary. George Gershwin’s score sweeps into the auditorium through the majesty of what must be the best orchestra playing nightly in Theatre land this year.

Then we have the cast from Broadway led by Robert Fairchild who moves like no-one I have ever seen in musical theatre and boy can he sing. Leanne Cope also has the credentials of a top Broadway dancer and singer. Together they are a dream couple at the centre of a dream cast.

I have never seen anything that flows like this production. The cast sing and dance seamlessly as the scenes form and reform around them. It is beautifully cinematic in look and powerfully theatrical in performance
