Tickets for An American In Paris-  Dominion Theatre, London

An American In Paris Award-winning musical An American In Paris transports West End audiences to a French capital beautifully adorned with artistic possibility, sweeping romance, and timeless George and Ira Gershwin music and lyrics. A stunning reimagining of the Oscar-winning film, the musical was acclaimed upon its widely lauded Broadway run, telling the story of Jerry Mulligan, an American GI striving for success as a painter at the cessation of the war. In a city whose streets are overflowing with joyous hope and sheer potential, a chance encounter with beautiful young dancer Lise leads Jerry on a journey of friendship, love and a sensuous romance of art. Thrillingly staged by a company of over 50 actors, dancers and musicians, including original cast members Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, and with direction and choreography by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, astounding dancing, jaw-dropping spectacle and triumphant songs all combine in a breathtakingly beautiful production.

History of the Dominion Theatre

Constructed in 1928-9 on Tottenham Court Road in Camden, The Dominion is a steel-framed structure with Portland stone facade. Despite being constructed for live performances the venue was converted into a cinema in the 1930s.

In 1957 Bill Haley and the Comets marked the return of live performances to the Dominion, followed by the first major piece of live musical theatre performed there - The Judy Garland Show, which ran for a month later the same year.

Bill Haley and the Comets

South Pacific ran for almost four and a half years at the Dominion between 1958 and 1962.

The 1990s saw big musical shows return to the Dominion. Performances have included Grand Hotel, Barnum, Grease, Scrooge, Beauty and the Beast and We Will Rock You. The Queen musical ran for 12 years from 2002 until 2014. Afterwards the theatre was treated to multi-million pound restoration and refurbishment.
