A stage production of movie musical classic “An American in Paris” is set to screen at the River Street Theatre in Jaffrey Thursday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2.

“An American in Paris” was first produced as a musical film by powerhouse studio MGM in 1951. It starred Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron. It won six Academy Awards including Best Picture. It remains one of the great Hollywood musicals of all time.

Flash forward 64 years and it is adapted for the Broadway stage and wins four Tony Awards. It has a great love story and perfect score with memorable songs including “I Got Rhythm,” “S’Wonderful,” and “Tra La La.”

An American GI’s chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer leads Paris to become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of World War II.
