Last week J and I went to see An American in Paris. An adaptation of the classic Gene Kelly, this was the best show I've seen in year. I would rank it up there with my favorite shows of all like Wicked and 42nd Street. It's sure to become a classic. I couldn't jump up for a standing ovation fast enough. There was a lot of ballet which was my favorite part. My other favorite part was the orchestra playing all of the great Gershwin that I love. I mean it was an absolute winning combination on that glorious stage. We didn't even see it with the main lead. Since we went on a Wednesday night we saw Garen Scribner and I can't imagine anyone playing that part, dancing that role, and having better chemistry with Leanne Cope than him. It was all superb from start to finish. I don't think I've ever seen a show where the first act flew by so quickly. I was completely enraptured. I really hadn't remembered the story that well from the movie and it's not even the movie that makes the show. I have a hard time believing I will enjoy Fun Home more.
