Tempe events feature AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at ASU Gammage, April 18-23, 2017.  The new Tony Award®-winning musical tells the story of an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each longing for a new beginning in the aftermath of World War II.

Acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award®-winner Christopher Wheeldon has captured the magic and romance of Paris in perfect harmony with unforgettable songs from George and Ira Gershwin in the show that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2015 season!

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.”

Don’t miss this stunning Broadway hit when it arrives in Tempe on its first national tour!  For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.asugammage.com/shows.
