Event details

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 that new life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret, and realizes he is not her only suitor. Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, it includes the Gershwin songs “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “'S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” “Stairway to Paradise.”
