Featured Reviews For Cirque du Soleil Paramour

Actors, Acrobats Pair Up for Cirque Spectacle 'Paramour' - NBC New York
...The $25 million "Paramour" goes heavy on the company's signature stunt sequences to our relief, because there isn't much to be extracted from the often eye-glazing book and score..."Paramour" earns props for the ways it employs aerialists and acrobats as doppelgängers for the leads. Thanks to clever costuming conceits, we almost believe we're watching the trio in some blur of elastic trickery...Kushnier...makes the most of his cliché-ridden role, exuding confidence and hubris as needed. Lewis...has a beautiful voice and gamely follows the worn path laid out ahead.

‘Paramour’ Review: Bringing the Big Top to Broadway - Wall Street Journal
This week, after numerous, internationally popular productions, the enterprise now called Cirque du Soleil Theatrical opened "Paramour," the first musical created by Cirque Du Soleil for Broadway...only the circus acts soar, sometimes literally, as the show's musical and film elements play, at best, dutiful and uninspired parts...The undistinguished and overamplified...Jeremy Kushnier, looking and sounding mostly mousey, plays AJ, a bearded, wax-mustached, egotistical film director. Ruby Lewis-wide of face, short of neck and plain of voice-portrays Indigo...The Golden Age of Hollywood invoked in the program and in the art-deco look of Jean Rabasse's sometimes impressive settings dims noticeably when projection designers Olivier Simola and Christophe Waksmann add video images to the stage pictures....Daphné Mauger's choreography for the various ensembles and for the leads serves as little more than filler throughout....

The new Broadway production of Paramour marks dancer Reed Kelly's fourth Broadway show. No stranger to the Lyric Theatre, he last flew around that stage in Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. He also took flight as a monkey in Broadway's Wicked and danced in The Addams Family. In addition to performing, Reed continues to interact with a legion of reality show fans from his stint on CBS's Survivor: San Juan Del Sur in 2014.

Eyes on the center ring for this week's episode of Broadwaysted with The Leading Lady of Cirque du Soleil's PARAMOUR-Ruby Lewis! Ruby pours some cabernet into her show sippy cup and spills about her 10-hour trip to Vegas, her journey with PARAMOUR from inception to Broadway, and her stressful childhood experience warming up for the Petite Miss Dance of America Competition. We play 'Dirty Hands on a Hardbody' and a new game called 'Is that a Cirque Title?' before we have a great round of Lights of Broadway Showcards Against Humanity (with a big shout out to Sydney Lucas!).
