Critic Reviews for April in Paris

All Critics (4)

The nimble amiability of Ray Bolger and the Gallic drollery of Claude Dauphin combine with some pleasant singing by Doris Day to make this a diverting slaphappy musical...

It's all completely ludicrous yet quite charming.

Mediocre star driven musical.

Audience Reviews for April in Paris


Colorful, breezy minor musical. Doris is full of her usual verve and Ray Bolger, although an unusual leading man for her is a dancing wonder especially in the number when he dances with Washington and Lincoln.
