One of the many gasp-worthy moments of Cirque du Soleil's first Broadway musical, PARAMOUR, comes when twin-brother aerialists Andrew and Kevin Atherton beautifully fly above those in the orchestra section as a team, holding onto straps and flexing their bodies into stunning positions.

The boys do pretty well when they're on the ground, too, as they demonstrate in this video taken in the middle of Times Square. The UK-born pair are New Yorkers now, though they've been touring with Cirque du Soleil for over 16 years. Playgoers and pedestrians surely agree it's good to have them back.

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 Soleil musical, is a landmark production for Cirque 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.

PARAMOUR spins the thrilling tale of a beautiful young actress forced to choose between love and art in the glamorous world of Golden Age Hollywood. 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.
