The Broadway Play “An American in Paris” has a dramatic yet incredibly profound plotline. The play commences when the soldier Jerry Mulligan, decides to start his life afresh in Paris after the devastating World War II. His decision is influenced by young woman who seems to leave a lasting impression in his life .

In Paris, he collaborates with two kindred soul seekers, namely Adam Hochberg (a musical composer) and another man called Henri Baurel, who is the affluent son of a leading French Industrialist. Together with them, he imagines of a happy future than the immense atrocities that they had already witnessed.

As the plot commences, Jerry once again crosses his paths with the stunning French ballerina- Lise Dassin. As he meets her, he becomes all the more sure that he had taken a right decision. But the ecstasy and satisfaction of meeting the love of his life soon transforms, as he comes to know that Lise is the same woman who is pursued by his dear friend Henri.

Meanwhile, Mulligan soon comes in touch with the condescending Milo Davenport, who is an American Philanthropist. Davenport, impressed by the Jerry’s talents, good looks and post war enthusiasm, introduces him to the blooming art scene of Paris.

Lise, on the other hand, falls in a deep conflict while choosing between his responsibilities for Baurel and what she thinks is her genuine admiration for Jerry. As everyone finally succumbs to fate, Lise too does the same, as she feels that she is highly indebted to Henri as he saved her family during the difficult times of war.

But as the curtain falls, we see Lise claiming her position as an accomplished artist in the art scene of France.
