April 24th, 2015 | By Imogen Lloyd Webber

C’est Magnifique! An American in Paris will dance its way on a U.S. national tour for the 2016-17 season. Based on the Oscar-winning film, the musical of hope, redemption and romance will announce further details about the production soon.

Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, the tuner tells the tale of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

An American in Paris features music by George and Ira Gershwin with a book by Craig Lucas. The show includes the songs “I Got Rhythm,” “‘S Wonderful,” “But Not For Me,” “Stairway to Paradise,” “Our Love Is Here To Stay," “They Can’t Take That Away” and orchestral music including “Concerto in F,” “2nd Prelude,” “2nd Rhapsody” and “An American In Paris.” The score has been adapted, arranged and supervised by Rob Fisher.

The Broadway production officially opened at the Palace Theatre on April 12 and stars Robert Fairchild, Leanne Cope, Veanne Cox, Jill Paice, Brandon Uranowitz and Max Von Essen.
