It's no secret that actors love a good entrance and PARAMOUR's Jeremy Kushnier gets a doozy of an introduction, being the center of a spectacular array of choreography and athleticism in the musical's hard-driving opening number, "The Hollywood Wiz."

While PARAMOUR is Cirque du Soleil Theatrical's first try at a Broadway musical, Kushnier is a seasoned pro at the game, having made his Broadway debut in the leading role of Ren McCormack in FOOTLOOSE, followed by stints as Roger in RENT, Tommy DeVito in JERSEY BOYS and understudying Jesus, Judas and Pilate in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.

In PARAMOUR he's A.J. Golden, "the best director in the whole damn biz," as he belts in the show's original cast recording session.

Cirque du Soleil has dazzled audiences the world over, and now it's finally on Broadway with its boldest, most heart-soaring spectacle ever. PARAMOUR, a Cirque du Soleilmusical, is a landmark production forCirque du Soleil, blending the best of Broadway with Cirque du Soleil's signature style. The show has many of the elements beloved on Broadway: a timeless love story, great music, and professional actors in lead roles; but with the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic integrated throughout the show: visionary production design on a grand scale, world class entertainment, and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination.

Featuring eye-popping acrobatics and sumptuous music and dance, PARAMOUR is a groundbreaking new event that transports you to a sublime world of emotion and awe as it walks the exhilarating tightrope of the heart.
