The Balancing Act Goes Behind the Scenes of An American in Paris
November 7, 2016
Broadway's National Tour is Dancing its Way to Your City.
Today our Broadway Across America series continues with An American in Paris! The Balancing Act’s Amber Milt introduces us to the actors who’ll be taking over the lead roles as the Tony Award winning musical begins its national tour!
From a 1928 George Gershwin composition, to an Oscar winning 1950’s film starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, this modern day stage adaptation has become the toast of Broadway and soon the nation! Director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon talks about his creative process in making the musical and how he’s individualized the production to reflect the touring company’s strengths. Sara Esty and her twin sister Leigh Ann Esty star as “Lise,” the young French ballerina that captures the heart of former American soldier “Jerry”– played by Garen Scribner– who stays on in Paris after the war. What ensues is a beautiful story told through music and movement that’s sure to capture the hearts of audiences across America.
