An American in Paris Leaves a Trail of Stardust at The Hippodrome

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

And what a trail of stardust the whole musical leaves, both for the characters and the audience! There are the sets and lighting . . . which dazzle in their nimble evocation of the wonders of Paris, with a side-step into a fantasy nightclub that seems to be Radio City Music Hall, complete with spangled leggy chorines and dudes in top hats and tails. There is the dancing of the athletic Maddox and the graceful Walsh. (How many performers out there can claim true balletic chops, skill at acting and singing - and the aforementioned hotness?)
