Transport yourself to the City of Light during OKC Broadway’s An American in Paris, based on the 1951 film of the same name (starring Gene Kelly). The show weaves the story of a romance between an American soldier and a French woman after WWII.

“This production is just pure beauty,” says Elizabeth W. Gray, general manager at OKC Broadway. “Broadway shows of this caliber are what we at OKC Broadway strive to bring to our patrons.”

The musical numbers are marvelous, but Gray says choreography is the key to the production’s success.

An American in Paris won scores of awards, including the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for best choreography of a musical,” she says. “The dancing is stunning.”

Recommended for ages 10 and up, An American in Paris is perfect for “date nights, families, a mother/daughter event and ladies night out,” Gray says.

The shows runs June 5-10 at the Civic Center Music Hall, and again June 19-24 at the Tulsa PAC courtesy Celebrity Attractions. For tickets, visit or
