Directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran, Tony Gonzalez, this exciting new show borrows the name from a song in the Gershwin classic “An American in Paris.” The lyrics build on the idea that it is the journey, and what we make of it, that matters. Tony has enlisted a powerhouse cast to perform and share this inspiring message that includes performers who have been featured on Broadway in WICKED, HAIRSPRAY, AMERICAN IDIOT, JEKYLL & HYDE, HAIR, and more!
