We are huge fans of the 1951 movie and the Gershwin music. We were eager to see this Broadway version, and even more so after reading the tremendously positive review in the NY Times. What a wonderful show! The music (as expected), the artistic and imaginative sets, the modification of the original (rather scant) story, were all wonderful. The lead... More

You've seen the movie? Great. This is not the movie. The story is slightly different, as are the some of the songs and all of the staging. And that is a very good thing. This is quite simply the best show I have ever seen. If you love Gershwin, and lots of lovely dancing, and sets that will leave your... More

Yes, other reviewers are correct in that balcony seats are cramped but show was excellent so didn't mind too much. The dancing, the music, costumes, set design all made for memorable performance. Gorgeous theater.

First let me say that the theater is beautiful and Judy performed there so that puts it high on the list !! American in Paris is a truly delightful and entertaining show. Christopher Wheeldon did an amazing job with the direction and choreography and we applauded and stood for this wonderful and talented cast. I highly recommend seeing this show... More

I was in NYC on business and decided last minute to catch a show. I got to ticket office about 1 hour before show and got the last ticket that was not obstructed view. It was a good seat left of stage with a nice view.

The one word for this show is Memorable. Everything comes together here: dancing, acting, music, costumes, sets, and special effects. Believe me I have seen a lot of musicals since Can-Can, my first in 1953, and this show ranks in my top twenty of all time. It's in a class by itself!

We went to see An American in Paris last weekend at the Palace Theater. It was fantastic. We were in the second balcony, but the sight lines to the stage were not bad. The Gershwin music was great. The ballet was great. A really nice show.

An American in Paris is absolutely stunning! The dancing was incredible! It was so beautiful that it was almost hard to believe that these were real people dancing. (I know, that sounds weird!) I almost cried, it was so beautiful. The music, singing and acting were great also, of course! It reminded me of why you want to see live... More

This show is so beautiful that it is almost painful !!! Ballet is exquisite. Gershwin songs. Brilliant cast. Perfection. What more can I say? This show is magnificent. Story is a bit different from the movie. The time is a bit different as well---movie took place 7 years after liberation. The show took place immediately after the end of the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
