Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical recreates the streets of mid-century Paris against the backdrop of the lush Gershwin score. Acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award® winner Christopher Wheeldon brings the magic and romance of Paris into perfect harmony in the show that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2015 season! This musical adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film features some of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved music, including I Got RhythmThe Man I Love and They Can’t Take That Away from Me. It is an enduring story of hope, romance and love in a city rebuilding from the heartbreak of World War II.
