New York ,NY – “Paramour” the musical is produced by Cirque Du Soleil and makes a splash in New York. This is an attempt to bring together a traditional musical with the hallmark of Cirque Du Soleil which includes acrobats, gymnasts, jugglers and high wire acts. This show integrates a story with includes a plot, musical and dance numbers. The show is set in the “golden age of Hollywood-the 1930’s.
Paramour’s plot revolves around an egotistical director played by Jeremy Kushnier who wants to make a star out of his love interest played by Ruby Lewis and another main character the song writer played by Ryan Vona. The show was conceived and directed by Philippe Decoufle. As in many musicals of the 1930’s an impresario goes to a dingy club and finds a singer and songwriter and proceeds to make them stars and celebrities ala 42nd Street or Singing In The Rain. The words and music and dialogue are not Broadway standards.
You come to Paramour for the great fun in watching the high flying acts and gymnastic ability of the actors. The show is a lot of fun and definitely one your children will love and find entertaining.
