I just returned from Paris last month, where my husband, Jonathan and I went to see the revitalized play, “An American in Paris.” Our dear friend, Garen Scribner, was cast for the play and we went to watch him perform. It was a fantastic play, lots of acting, singing and dancing and a great rewrite of the original script for the 1952 movie staring Gene Kelly.
