This past Friday, March 13, 2015, An American In Paris opened for public preview performances at the Palace Theater on Broadway. The mood was electric on stage and in the audience. The audience loved the show and gave us a standing ovation. After the show, the producers hosted a private and intimate celebration party for the cast, crew, and immediate friends and family. It was so nice to take a be able to take a brief moment to celebrate what we have accomplished, and to prepare us for the work that still needs to be done for our official opening on April 12th. What an exciting time!
