'An American in Paris' dances home to Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “An American in Paris” is coming home to Pittsburgh, where it all began.

The Oscar-winning movie starred hometown song-and-dance hero Gene Kelly. The musical theater sensation — winner of four Tony Awards with 12 nominations — can trace its roots to the Pittsburgh CLO. Executive producer Van Kaplan, who with fellow producers Stuart Oken of Elephant Eye Theatricals and Roy Furman, conceived the musical, pulled together a creative team, took the financial risk and have reaped the rewards.
