Description

ROMANCE! ADVENTURE! GERSHWIN! WHO COULD

ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE!

In postwar Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love in this breathtaking production. Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret—and realizes he is Main Theatret her only suitor.  Winner of four Tony Awards and inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, this exquisite production features your favorite Gershwin songs including I Got Rhythm, Liza, ‘S Wonderful, But Not for Me, and Stairway to Paradise.

 

Dedicated In Memory of Richard “Dick” B. Hellstrom
