An American in Paris Sashays Across the Stage of This Nearby Performing Arts Center

Searching for the perfect musical? Join us at El Paso Convention and Performing Art Center to see An American in Paris on Tuesday, February 25th or Wednesday the 26th! An American in Paris is the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.

In post-war Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. Gershwin’s soaring melodies are matched by gravity-defying dance as the world rediscovers the power of love in this breathtaking production. Hoping to start a new life, World War II veteran Jerry Mulligan chooses newly-liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret – and realizes he is not her only suitor.

Winner of four Tony Awards and inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, this exquisite production features your favorite Gershwin songs including “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” ’S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” and “Stairway to Paradise.” An American in Paris runs for two hours and 30 minutes, which includes a 15-minute intermission. Tickets start at $32.50 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com and the Plaza Theatre Box Office. For additional information, please call 915-231-1100.

Even though Sonoma Palms Apartments in Las Cruces, New Mexico provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
