What Is An American in Paris Like? This Broadway show takes place after World War II, the story of An American in Paris follows a protagonist named Jerry Mulligan, who participated in the brutal combat only to decide to begin his life anew in Paris as a painter, a drastic change in his life. He then meets a lovely shop girl named Lise, who complicates the new life that he had begun with fellow ex-pat Milo Davenport. Jerry then realizes that his friends Adam and Henri are also all interested in Lise. This classic tale of youth in Paris in the 20th century has been reworked to spark the imagination of those in the 21st century, coupled with a brilliant Gershwin score and an exciting path of production in both Paris and New York. An American in Paris' 2015 TONY Award for Best Choreography is a testimony to how compelling the dancing on the Palace Theatre stage really is.
