An American in Paris + Dinner

An American in Paris + Dinner

21/09/2017

‘S wonderful! ’S marvellous! ’S awful nice! ’S paradise! ’S what I love to see!
An American in Paris is the new musical London has been waiting for. It’s a musical play inspired by the 1951 Academy Award winning film, starring Gene Kelly and Lesley Caron, of the same name. We’ve been to see this musical and it was fantastic – a wonderful mix of beautiful dancing and superb music and in a lovely theatre too. We have best priced tickets for the evening performance and have arranged an optional dinner for you before the show.
