About

"I CAN'T IMAGINE A BETTER PLACE TO PREMIERE THIS RE-IMAGINED PRODUCTION OF GIGI THAN WASHINGTON. THIS CITY, DESIGNED BY FRENCH-BORN ARCHITECT PIERRE CHARLES L'ENFANT, IS A PERFECT MATCH FOR THIS WONDERFUL SHOW."
--Eric Schaeffer, director
 
Gigi
 
Thank heaven! A Gigi like you've never seen! Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's celebrated musical will play a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in an all-new production directed by Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet, the eight-time Tony-nominated Kennedy Center revival of Follies) with an entirely re-envisioned book by acclaimed British playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas ("Cranford," "Upstairs Downstairs," "Call the Midwife"). Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a romantic musical comedy about a young woman coming of age in the magical world of La Belle Époque where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail. When she finds true love with a wealthy young playboy, both must overcome their destinies to create a future together.
 
With a Tony Award–winning score, Gigi features such Broadway standards as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember It Well," and "The Night They Invented Champagne." First a novella by Colette, Gigi evolved from a play starring an unknown Audrey Hepburn, to the nine-time Academy Award–winning Best Picture starring Leslie Caron, and then a Tony Award–winning Broadway musical.

Recommended for age 10 and up.
