Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...n the two years since "An American in Paris" opened on Broadway, the image of Americans, and of Paris, have been tested in dangerous social and political crosscurrents. Are Americans now nothing but bullies and Paris only a target? This show suggests an alternative, urging us to create art out of calamity and to accept love wherever we find it. It may not be exactly what MGM shot in Culver City, but it's got heart and truth on its side as well as music that will always be one of our culture's supreme achievements."

"...But visually and aurally it's a wonder and will please fans of musical theatre young and old nostalgic for a time when there was hope in the air, love blooming all around, and the urge to get up and dance was infectious."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...But the true heart of this show is the beautiful fusion of dance and production design accomplished by Wheelson and his complete design team of Natasha Katz (Lights), Jon Weston (Sound), set & costumes (Bob Crowley) and production (59 Productions). And Rob Fisher's adaptations and arrangements of Gershwin's "Concerto in F" and "An American in Paris" move these works perfectly from the concert hall to the theater stage. As a perfect tribute to the Gershwins, the show closes with the elegant 1930s standard, "The Can't Take That Away From Me" (Adam, Henri, Jerry)."
