An American in Paris found a rapturous Brandon Comer discovering Paris while Paris, in turn, discovered him, particularly through a jazzy, sexy, sizzly duet with Caitlin Negron. The openness of Comer's personality perfectly suited Hochoy's interpretation of Gershwin's alternatively lush and whimsical symphonic tone poem about an Everyman's love affair at first sight with the "city of light" and its inhabitants. Laura E. Glover's richly nuanced lighting was part of the never-ending action just as the character-specific costumes by Cheryl Sparks, Barry Doss and Lydia Tanji were part of the milieu evoking people, sights and events.Liberty Harris' seductive shimmy twinned to the clarinet's opening glissando to the breath-taking one-arm sustained lift, hold and turn by Timothy June and Harris, to the full company's jettisoning outburst at the close, Hochoy's storytelling in Rhapsody highlighted the nuances of every phrase. Yet the work balanced on the fulcrum of Jillian Godwin's understanding of the space between notes. Watching her illuminate the brilliance of the piano interlude with her body in mid-flight, her mind in mixed signals, as a bird in cross-winds, was to be in the company of genius.
