One of my New Year's resolutions was to do more stuff.......well, I am lucky some awesome shows are rolling through the DFW area. An American in Paris is glorious - sumptuous, beautiful, rich, and sublime. The dancing and singing were on point. The sets were visually stunning.
It's Paris, right after WWII and three men vie for the attention of a beautiful dancer. There's a lot more to the story than that - residue of war and other issues rise to the surface. The plot has a strong structure, and the musical numbers keep the story line flowing.
Gershwin tunes galore - I Got Rhythm, S'Wonderful, But Not for Me, I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise, They Can't Take That Away From Me
Hum along and escape to Paris. S'Wonderful, indeed....
