LUFKIN, TEXAS: The Angelina Arts Alliance is proud to present the touring Broadway musical AN AMERICAN IN PARIS on March 7 at 7:30 pm at the Temple Theater. In post war Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love in this breathtaking production. Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret – and realizes he is not her only suitor.
The 2015 Broadway production of AN AMERICAN IN PARIS won 4 TONY Awards. This exquisite all new production is inspired by the Academy Award-winning film and features your favorite Gershwin songs including “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “’S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” and “Stairway to Paradise.” Inspired by the Academy-Award winning 1951 film, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist Craig Lucas.
The New York Times raves “AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is a triumph! Pure joy!” and the Wall Street Journal declares, “Once you’ve seen it, you’ll find it hard to settle for less ever again.” This beautiful, all-new production is produced by Big League Theatricals and is coming to Lufkin, Texas on March 7.
