Gigi





Based on the 1944 novella by French writer Colette and the 1958 musical film, this musical romantic comedy features the work of the legendary Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe.


Story:

Gigi is a carefree girl being taught the high-society ways of fashionable Paris; Gaston is an aristocratic playboy who has begun to bore of the extravagant lifestyle he’s enjoyed for so long. When the two meet, they feel a bond, though still separated by society class structure. When Gaston proposes to take Gigi as a mistress, the two must weigh the standards of Parisian culture and their own personal feelings to come to a decision on their mutual destiny.
