American G.I.s Jerry and Adam decide to stay in Paris after World War II to pursue their artistic goals, Jerry as a painter and Adam as a composer. Joined by Henri, a wealthy heir who dreams of becoming a a song-and-dance man, the three get back to living life in peacetime. There's also the matter of Lise, the beautiful French dancer Jerry recently bumped into — she's worth sticking around for as well. But Jerry's not the only one dazzled by her charms, and the course of true love never did run smooth. The stage version of An American in Paris is inspired by the 1951 MGM film, and it features the same swooping romance and exceptional dancing that made its namesake a classic. An American in Paris is performed Tuesday through Sunday (January 17 to 29) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; Tickets are $25 to $95.
