Then there’s Henri (Bay Area native Nick Spangler), the dapper heir to a textile throne who longs to be in show business. And that’s not the only desire he must hide from his parents. Book writer Craig Lucas (“Light in the Piazza,” “Prelude to a Kiss,”) lightens the sentimentality of the story with a postmodern sensibility that’s almost as graceful as the jetes. To be sure, this musical has imperfections. The first act drags a bit and the central love affair lacks fire.
The tartly witty Spangler steals every scene he’s in as the debonair Frenchman, and Brower is so tender and vulnerable as Adam it’s hard not to root for him, Maddox, meanwhile, seems too bland white satin ballet shoes to be the man of Lise’s dreams, But those are quibbles given the genuinely uplifting power of this production, It’s a hopelessly romantic diversion from a world all too often beleaguered by darkness, Book by Craig Lucas, music by George Gershwin, direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, based on the 1951 movie..
So, what are you doing this weekend? Here are a baker’s dozen of cool things to do in the Bay Area Sept. 14-16 (and beyond). Swoon-worthy ‘American in Paris opens tour in San Francisco: You could do a heck of a lot worse for source material for a stage musical than “An American in Paris,” the Oscar-winning song-and-dance romance set in post-World War II Paris.

But what the 2015 musical has going for it is Christopher Wheeldon, the famed dancer and choreographer who won a Tony Award for his work bringing “An American in Paris” to the stage. Now a touring production of the hit show has landed at San Francisco’s Orpheum Theatre, featuring Wheeldon’s dazzling choreography and those amazing Gershwin tunes, including “I Got Rhythm,” “‘S Wonderful,” and “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise.” We dare you not to fall in love.
