Cirque du Soleil PARAMOUR on Broadway - Show Summary - Photos
Show Summary - Cirque du Soleil PARAMOUR Paramour is the new Cirque du Soleil show, and the first Cirque du Soleil show that was created with Broadway originally in mind in the original conception of the show. It bridges the traditional Cirque du Soleil circus style with riveting acrobatics and spectacle, along with the traditional Broadway concept of a plot driven love story. The story deals with a beautiful young poet who is forced to make a decision between love and art.
The show will be held in the enormous Lyric Theatre (which was previously known as the Foxwoods Theatre, and before that the Hilton Theatre), which is also where large scale musicals such as Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark have been held. The theatre is perfect for this show which will incorporate sweeping spectacle and take advantage of the full height and size of the gigantic venue. Cirque du Soleil has previously entered the Broadway market with such shows as Banana Shpeel in 2010 and Zarkana in both 2011 and 2012. Furthermore the Cirque show Wintuk played in Madison Square Garden during four holiday seasons 2007 to 2010. Nevertheless, Paramour is a groundbreaking work from the extremely successful masters of circus arts, as it will blend the best of both classic Cirque du Soleil and story driven Broadway theatre.

What Is Paramour Like? Not only is Paramour an exciting new work that combines the best of both Cirque du Soleil's stunts and the drama of Broadway, but it has an excellent creative team behind it. The show is directed by Philippe Decouflé, the French stage director and choreographer who has choreographed for the Lyon Opera Ballet, the opening and closing ceremonies for the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France, the 2007 Rugby Union World Cup Parade in Saint-Denis, Paris, and the Cirque du Soleil show Iris based in Los Angeles. Paramour has an outstanding company of 38 actors, aerialists, dancers, acrobats and circus arts performers. The principal roles are played by experienced theatre actors including Ruby Lewis and Bradley Dean, and the company underscores the drama with gorgeous spectacle. All in all, this is an incredible show to see on Broadway, and is enjoyable for the entire family.
Is Paramour Good for Kids? Yes, the show is appropriate for children and adults both to enjoy, although very young children may be frightened by the special effects. Children under the age of 4 will not be permitted in the theatre.

The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea.
A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
