The stage musical An American in Paris is inspired by the 1951 Academy Award-winning film of the same name that starred Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron. Set in newly-liberated Paris, American World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan arrives in the city with the hope of forgetting the brutalities of war and becoming a famous artist.
He soon falls in love with mysterious shop girl Lise, but has to battle for her attentions alongside his two friends Henri, a French aristocrat, and Adam, a Jewish American songwriter.
