REVIEW: An American in Paris ". . . an enjoyable evening at the theatre"
The art deco features of the Dominion Theatre provide a fitting home for 1940s musical An American in Paris. Based on a Gene Kelly film of the same name, the show delivers everything you would expect from a musical of that period. The costume, choreography and music provide a nostalgic feel – something that will appeal to fans of La La Land.

REVIEW: An American in Paris at the Dominion Theatre * * * *
When An American In Paris opened on Broadway in 2014, it was one of the hottest dance shows of the season. Now, three years later, the show has landed in London’s West End with Tony Award-nominees Leanne Cope and Robbie Fairchild at the helm in a production so unique and so dazzling that it’s sure to leave a mark on the West End for time to come.

REVIEW: An American in Paris
An American in Paris feels more like a Sadler’s Wells show than a West End musical, with its focus on ballet it is much slower than West End audiences will expect (especially compared to Disney’s Aladdin around the corner) but it is a beautiful show, which puts the focus on movement rather than flamboyance.

Shows to see in London for Valentine's Day 2017
Valentine’s Day, whether you love theatre, or love someone who loves theatre, why not treat yourself to a show this cold February evening? (It will make up for the scarily busy restaurants, I promise)
Last year I spent Valentine’s Day with Simon Russell Beale. If you are confused by that statement for a number of reasons, then you should be. Sadly he isn’t available this year, but these will be just as enjoyable.

The History Of Paris And Broadway Spectacular An American In Paris
If you’re really odd and don’t check Twitter every second of every day, then you’d probably be unbeknownst to the fact that the Broadway smash-hit AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is headed to London’s Dominion Theatre in March 2017. The show not only has a massive cult following thanks to its very old roots from its movie days, but it also has a very big new fan base thanks to this fresh and new musical; this dance-centric musical balances old and new in a way that was so successful, it landed itself a whopping 12 Tony Award nominations last year including Best Musical.
