“An American in Paris,” the new musical adaptation of the 1951 Gene Kelly film that wove a plot around George Gershwin’s orchestral work of the same name, will come to Broadway in the spring, the show’s producers announced on Thursday. Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, the musical will begin previews at the Palace Theater on March 13, 2015, and will open on April 12.
The Broadway run, which has been anticipated since the show was announced last October, follows a world premiere limited engagement at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, where previews begin on Nov. 22.
Much of the Paris cast will appear on Broadway, including the New York City Ballet principal dancer Robert Fairchild as Jerry Mulligan (the singing and dancing role that Kelly played in the film) and Leanne Cope, of the Royal Ballet, as Lise Dassin, as well as Veanne Cox, Jill Paice, Brandon Uranowitz and Max von Essen.
Its Paris setting notwithstanding, much of the show is rooted in New York. The score, for starters, includes not only the title piece, but also other Gershwin orchestral works and several George and Ira Gershwin songs (“I Got Rhythm,” “But Not For Me” and “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise,” among them).
Mr. Wheeldon had earlier created a ballet setting of “An American in Paris” for the New York City Ballet in 2005. Mr. Fairchild has taken a leave from that company to perform in the musical.
Further casting and ticket information will be announced later, a spokeswoman for the producers said on Thursday.
“The Châtelet is more than a place to do the show, though who wouldn’t want to do ‘An American in Paris’ in Paris, and to bring that feel of Paris to our show,” Mr. Oken said during a conference call with Mr. Kaplan and Mr. Choplin. “But the more important thing is this is a theater led by artists who will make the show richer and better.”
