Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron sing and dance to the music of George and Ira Gershwin in AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Screenplay and Music. When ex-GI Jerry Mulligan (Kelly) remains in Paris to pursue life as an artist, he is discovered by a wealthy patroness interested in more than his art. But Mulligan falls in love with a French shop girl (Caron) who is engaged to his best friend. Songs and music include "I Got Rhythm", "I'll Build A Stairway to Paradise", " 'S Wonderful", and "Our Love is Here to Stay". The climax of the film is "The American in Paris" ballet, a 16 minute dance featuring Kelly and Caron set to Gershwin's An American in Paris. Starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant. Directed by Vincente Minnelli.

Critical Stages in association with Koral Chandler and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre present Kaput

Kaput, the multi-award winning family show has melted hearts of all ages around the world with it's glorious brand of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness. Be swept up in the mayhem that is the larger-than-life 'elegant buffoon' Tom Flanagan, as one man’s life is flipped upside-down by the lonely, dust-covered world that surrounds him. This clumsy ‘Mr. Fixit’ takes one step forward and two-steps back in a highly skilled, hilariously funny and beautifully poignant bit of madness.

Tom’s first solo show - Kaput - opened early 2012 to a premier sold-out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in the Garden of Unearthly Delights, where it was nominated for Best Circus & Physical Theatre. It then went on to receive critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the show won Mervyn Stutter's Spirit of the Fringe Award, and was listed by the Scotsman as one of the top 5 comedy shows at the Fringe.

Since then Tom Flanagan’s silent slapstick acrobatic comedy show Kaput has toured four continents, won countless awards and collected fans from 5 to 95 years old.
