Presse : Les critiques sont très bonnes:

"This gorgeously danced — and just plain gorgeous — production pays loving tribute to the 1951 movie, to the marriage of music and movement, and to cherished notions about romance that have been a defining element of the American musical theater practically since its inception." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Guiding his first musical, Wheeldon shows a vibrant vision and buckets of imagination, transforming the 1951 Gene Kelly-Leslie Caron film that inspires the show. He’s also got a cast and design team at the top of their game." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"An airy, gentle caress of a show, 'An American in Paris' is a welcome oddity on Broadway." Haley Goldberg for New York Post

"There’s much gorgeous ballet to admire in director-choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s Broadway debut, set against attractive, painterly backdrops by Bob Crowley, but the overall effect is of a dance concert with a semiserious musical squeezed into the cracks." David Cote for Time Out New York

"Beneath the considerable pizazz, Wheeldon conveys with grace and style the heartfelt romance and emotional colors that keep us enchanted until the last beautiful note has been sung." Jennifer Farrar for The Associated Press

"Not only is Wheeldon's nuanced command of storytelling through dance front and center, the production also foregrounds a triple-threat revelation in NYC Ballet principal Robert Fairchild, who proves himself more than capable of following in the suave footsteps of Gene Kelly." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"A dancer is a thing of beauty, and there is beaucoup beauty in director-choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s ravishing production of 'An American in Paris,' smartly but not slavishly adapted by Craig Lucas from the 1951 MGM movie." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
