**** Highly Recommended **** “An American in Paris” is a romantic, graceful yet athletic celebration in dance set to the glorious music of George Gershwin. ‘Amazing’ was the word I heard over and over in the Drury Lane lobby after the show. “An American in Paris” is in my top five favorite musicals, so I had really expectations. I’m happy to say that the absolutely exquisite Drury Lane exceeded my expectations. They nailed it! 4 BIG Spotlights
