One of the most captivating musicals ever to be adapted for the stage, An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy Award-winning film and features the music of George and Ira Gershwin. The Ogunquit Playhouse is proud to be the first regional theatre in the U.S. to produce this new musical, which won four Tony Awards in 2015. 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 stunning combination of classic music, timeless story, breathtaking dance and a beautiful, all-new, design created exclusively for the Ogunquit Playhouse results in a spectacular musical that includes the Gershwin songs “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “'S Wonderful,” and many more.
