This week sees the closing of a show that was praised for its brilliant choreography and direction of Christopher Wheeldon - making his directorial debut if you can believe it! Critics called it “theatrical gold” and a “riot of colour and movement”, and I have to wholeheartedly agree. I was captivated by the company of “An American in Paris” as their skills as dancers, singers and actors were on full display. They also move every bit of scenery, ensuring that the flow of movement never stops. And to top it all off, there’s a 20-minute ballet to finish this Broadway Transfer.

When we went to visit the company earlier this week, I had a quick look at the cast list and saw how many swings were on "An American in Paris." 13! That is a lot for any show, and I knew that I just had to sit down with some of them and let them tell their story about how intense this show is, not only the main cast and ensemble, but for the small army of swings.

James Butcher, Rebecca Fennelly , Aaron Smyth and Amy Hollins and I had a little chat just as the show started.
