Review: ‘An American in Paris’ at the Hippodrome Theatre

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Think of the latest “new” Gershwin touring show up at the Hippodrome Theatre — An American in Paris — as a G.I. “jukebox musical” with legs. About a hundred of them, it seems. And, boy oh boy, have they got rhythm! This is a slightly revamped touring version of what we saw in New York in 2015. And fans of the Oscar-winning 1951 MGM musical will note some deviations in plot and song settings. But lovers of musical romance and dance who catch the show in Baltimore aren’t likely to feel cheated in the least.
