It’s almost time to welcome 2019, and while we have an incredible winter lineup on TV this winter, we’re eager to say goodbye to 2018 on a high note. This year, we are excited to bring you a long weekend full of musical programs. Read on to find out what’s on the schedule this holiday weekend.
It’s a night of musicals from Great Performances this Friday! First, we’ll treat you to a new adaptation of a Broadway classic in An American in Paris: The Musical on December 28 at 7 p.m. The original 1951 MGM film starring Gene Kelly won six Academy Awards, but the show, full of recognizable songs by George Gershwin, came “home” to Broadway in 2015. Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon and starring Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, An American in Paris: The Musical earned four Tony Awards.
