Award-winning Broadway musical An American in Paris is set to hit Crown Theatre from Saturday, July 9 until Wednesday, July 27, directly after its season in Sydney.

After having to postpone the initial season in February 2022 due to the border closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, new dates have been quickly secured with existing tickets holders being contacted for rescheduling, and new tickets now on sale.

Co-producers The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment said they couldn’t wait to bring the production to Perth in July. “We are thrilled to have been able to find new dates in Perth so soon, and ensure audiences can experience this incredible theatrical experience along with the rest of Australia. The production set Brisbane alight with packed houses and rave reviews, and opens next month in Melbourne before moving to Sydney.”

Hailed as a “tour de force” for its inventive choreography, An American in Paris tells the entrancing story of a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl, set against the iconic backdrop of the most romantic city in the world.

Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris alive on stage with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including I Got Rhythm, S’Wonderful, But Not For Me and They Can’t Take That Away From Me.

The Australian cast features music theatre royalty performing alongside current stars from The Australian Ballet and a 33 strong ensemble of talented dancers, singers and actors.
