Jill Paice and her co-star Leanne Cope
Jill Paice '02 is starring in the Broadway musical An American in Paris, with previews beginning tonight, Friday, March 13, leading up to a Sunday, April 12 opening night at the Palace Theatre in New York City. A graduate of BW's acclaimed music theatre program, Paice has an impressive 13-year resume of experiences on stage from Broadway to The West End of London.

In a preview story, Broadway World calls the An American In Paris "the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war."

Paice is originating the role of Milo Davenport in An American in Paris, which is inspired by the Academy-Award winning film of the same name. In the video below, Paice talks about the experience of performing the show in Paris.
