On-Demand Video: WQXR Presents An American in Paris Preview
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war, is the stuff of Broadway dreams. This new Broadway musical, following its sold out tryout at Paris’ legendary Théâtre du Châlelet, arrives at the Palace Theatre on March 13.
