An American In Paris Publicity Shots

When “An American in Paris” opens at the Palace Theater on Broadway in April, it won’t look exactly like these two photographs, which were taken in Paris, where the musical will debut.

But the two performers pictured, Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, will be in the 26-member cast (which also includes Veanne Cox and Jill Paice and Max Von Essen), all of whom will be coming from Paris: The musical, adapted from the 1951 Gershwin movie, will debut this December at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

An American in Paris will be directed and choreographed by the extraordinary modern dance choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, making his Broadway directing debut, with a book by Craig Lucas.
