Dance Dance Wednesday Goes to the Tonys: An American in Paris (2015)
The winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Choreography with An American in Paris. The beautiful show employs a lot of ballet in its choreography, thanks to its choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. Not only did Wheeldon win a Tony for his choreography, he also won the prestigious Astaire Award earlier in the week (for which he tied with On the Town choreographer Joshua Bergasse). Here is the production number the cast did at this past Sunday’s Tonys, which also features Tony Nominees, and Astaire Winners, Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope.
