An American in Paris

After the end of World War II, Jerry, an American GI, decides to remain in Paris and attempts to start a new life as a painter. He falls in love with Lise, a beautiful Jewish-French girl who survived the Holocaust by living in hiding with a French family. Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, the musical includes songs by George and Ira Gershwin. Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon.

Prayer for the French Republic

Prayer for the French Republic is set in 1944 and focused on a Jewish couple in Paris desperately awaiting news of missing family members. More than 70 years later, the couple’s great-grandchildren find themselves facing the same question as their ancestors: "Are we safe?" Following five generations of a French-Jewish family, Prayer for the French Republic is a sweeping look at history, home and the effects of an ancient hatred.
