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.


Five former German soldiers are invited to go hunting by another veteran, who was unjustly sent on a suicide mission which he survived but which left him horribly injured. As each one gets separated from the group, a shot his heard and that person does not return. The audience never learns whether they are killed or if the shooter is Helm. As the veterans discuss their relationship with Helm some are defensive, some guilt ridden, and some take no responsibility.

The Outsider

Also translated as The Man Oustide, dramatizes the despair of the disillusioned World War II German veteran from the Eastern front, Beckmann, who discovers upon his return home he has lost his wife and his home. He is rejected everywhere he turns and he seems to commits suicide in the Elbe River.
