KIDS COMMUTE: 'An American in Paris' week!
We're learning about this 2015 Broadway musical featuring George and Ira Gershwin's music! And you can see it live at Interlochen Center for the Arts Friday - Sunday!
"An American in Paris" has evolved a lot over almost 100 years!
It started out as an orchestral piece by George Gershwin that premiered in 1928.
Then, in 1951, it became a movie!
Gene Kelly, an ultra-famous actor, dancer, singer and choreographer starred in the film, whose storyline was inspired by the original orchestral work.
In 2015, a musical adaptation of the movie opened on Broadway!
