Ahead of opening at the Dominion Theatre in March, An American in Paris held a glitzy launch at Picturehouse Central this week and we popped down to chat to some of the cast and creatives.

With direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, An American in Paris has music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin, and a new book by Craig Lucas.

Based on the Academy Award-winning film starring Gene Kelly, the musical includes the hit songs "I Got Rhythm", "'S Wonderful" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me".

The musical is set in Paris and tells the story of Jerry Mulligan, an American GI trying to make it as a painter in post-war Paris.
