The 2019 – 2020 Carlsen Center Presents Series season will continue with “An American In Paris.”
Performing only two nights only, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical recreates the streets of mid-century Paris against the backdrop of a Gershwin score. Brought to life by acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, this musical adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film features some of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved music, including I Got Rhythm, The Man I Love and They Can’t Take That Away from Me. It is an enduring story of hope, romance and love in a city rebuilding from the heartbreak of World War II.
“An American in Paris runs February 15 – 16 in the Polsky Theatre. For more information visit jccc.edu/CarlsenCenter.
