Based on a true story, An Americain Boy is an original rock thriller, that tells the story of a charismatic and manipulative young man from France who will do anything to get a family, and the American family who will do anything to find their long-lost son. It explores the lengths people will go, and the lies we will tell ourselves, and others, for love.

With music by Olivier-Award winning composer Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera, Anna Nicole, The Tracey Ullman Show), lyrics by Tony-nominated lyricist/composer Amanda Green (Hands On A Hardbody, High Fidelity, Bring It On), and direction by Tony-nominated director Leigh Silverman (Violet, Chinglish, Well).

The creative team will be joined by Jarrod Spector (Beautiful, Jersey Boys), Alysha Umphress (On The Town, American Idiot), Rachel Bay Jones (First Lady Suite, Pippin), Jessica Crouch (NYMF, Next Broadway Sensation), Josh Young (Jesus Christ Superstar, Amazing Grace) and a surprise guest or two. Be the first audience to hear songs from the show, as the creative team takes you through the story. Don’t miss your chance to be among the very first to get a sneak peek.
