Christopher Wheeldon, one of the most prominent names in the world of ballets, brings life, music and adventure to the city that never sleeps, in the form of his musical adaptation of An American in Paris.
Paying tribute to Craig Lucas’ 1951 film of the same name, this stage-worthy ballet stars Robert Fairchild as an American soldier who stays in Paris after the Second World War and Leanne Cope as the French girl he falls in love with.
Fairchild and Cope are exceptionally trained ballets and their moves are rhythmic, eloquent and technically flawless. Their on-stage pairing makes the show even more interesting - as they prove their acting and singing talent in addition to their dance skills.
As G.I. Jerry Mulligan and Lise Dassin, Fairchild and Cope do justice to their roles and are no less than Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron (the actors who played these roles in the movie). As the Broadway artists gaze into each others’ eyes, you can feel the romance right out of the pages of a fairytale.
Making his debut as a Broadway director and choreographer, Wheeldon does not disappoint. He has been careful about the rest of the company as well and paid attention to detail on all dance steps and routines. In all, this musical plays as ballet-centric as it can get.
The dances, singing and Fairchild-Cope pairing are not the only defining characteristics of the play. It has a vintage musical score with a touch of the original movie soundtrack. “The Man I Love” and “They Can’t Take That Away from Me” are two of the most memorable tracks of the movie that have been adopted in this Broadway, with a retouch by orchestra maestros.
What makes this show standout among several musical adaptations of popular Hollywood movies, are the deep and dark materials used. The props and lights are strategically placed to give the aura of a war era. When pitted against the Technicolor setup of the movie, the Broadway musical does a better job at putting this play into a war veteran’s perspective.
There is plenty of light and laughter in the musical as the audience is introduced to the G.I. who goes to liberate Paris and falls in love with the city and its colorful community. The costume designers have spent a considerable amount of time in designing the shape-hugging cloths and muted color palette that defined the French and American fashion of the 50s.
