Critic’s Choice

  • “This fabulous new musical, a hit on Broadway and now here, is so light and graceful that at times you could swear that our couple in 1945 Paris, Jerry (Robert Fairchild) and Lise (Leanne Cope), are dancing on air. ‘S Wonderful.” –The Times
  • “Gene Kelly classic makes a sensuous leap from screen to stage. The much-loved MGM musical is now a multiple Tony award-winning stage show. Achingly lovely projected backdrops, sensuously intense dance and some of the finest showtunes, as well as the 1928 Jazz-symphonic title number, from the George Gershwin back-catalogue.” –The Daily Telegraph
