AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is one of the most strikingly beautiful shows I have ever seen.  The dancing is exquisite, a jeté above your average Broadway musical.  The acting is charming, the singing is accomplished and then you have all of that sublime Gershwin music . . . sorry, I just drifted into a “Rhapsody in Blue” induced happiness coma, I think they used to call it “reverie.”  Anyway, I found the book, by Craig Lucas, to be unexpectedly interesting and unpredictable.  The sets take your breath away.  The direction is expert.  Any other year, it would have been a shoo-in for the Tony, but their loss is your gain; tickets are available for this gorgeous, dancing gem.
