An American in Paris is a romantic love story. After the end of World War Two an American soldier, Jerry Mulligan, decides to stay in Paris and pursue his passion for painting. Beguiled by a mysterious girl and with a little help from kindred spirits Adam Hochberg, a composer and fellow veteran; and Henri Baurel, the son of wealthy French industrialists and wannabe song and dance man, they imagine a brighter future.

Jerry eventually meets the mysterious girl, a stunning French ballerina named Lise Dassin. He is smitten, however, he then discovers that she is the very same woman Adam and he have been encouraging Henri to propose to.

The backdrop is the romance and vibrancy of Paris and the art scene exploding with new life and post-war energy encapsulated by an enthusiastic and impressive cast of 25 singers, actors and dancers.

Lise struggles to choose between her suitors as each man comes to terms with his own fate. It is truly a bewitching and enchanting musical with romance very much in the air.
