FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Cirque du Soleil Paramour

Paramour: EW Stage Review
6 / 10

About 45 minutes into Paramour, the Cirque du Soleil musical that opens at Broadway's Lyric Theatre tonight, the twin aerialists Andrew and Kevin Atherton are suspended over a stage set of what's supposed to be a movie set of Ancient Egypt. They're a striking pair: platinum blond, lantern-jawed, impossibly toned, and mirror images, each hanging from a strap and effortlessly contorting himself, dozens of feet above the stage. It's the sort of breathtaking, beautiful athleticism you expect from Cirque du Soleil, and it's thrilling. The audience is rapt. At the end of their number, the Atherton twins get the evening's biggest applause.

Theater Reviews: Stew’s The Total Bent and Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour
5 / 10

Paramour's idea of the Broadway musical is particularly disturbing, evincing as it does only the skimpiest knowledge of the form. If we broadly describe a musical as an entertainment that offers a story about characters through song, we have already raised the bar too high. What Paramour offers is more of a series of clichés about humanoids accompanied by sounds. The main cliché is the one that glorifies Old Timey Hollywood as a land of tragic romance and glittering sophistication. ('Welcome to the Golden Age / Tux and tales [sic] it's all the rage,' the opening number helpfully explains.)
