World-renowned circus company Cirque du Soleil makes its Broadway debut with this brand-new musical extravaganza. More…
'Paramour' spins the 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, this one-of-a-kind spectacle transports audiences to a sublime world of emotion and awe as it walks the exhilarating tightrope of the heart.
See it if you must see every single Cirque Du Soleil show.
Don't see it if just don't. This is a real mess. Neither a real, good or skillful Cirque, nor a Broadway show. Writing is embarrassingly cliched & dated.
See it if If you're a tourist who has never seen a broadway show or a Cirque Du Soleil show you might be entertained since you have nothing to compare
Don't see it if Just don't. The show is a total mess. Acting/Writing is horrible. The circus tricks weren't even very impressive. Don't waste your money
See it if two amazing circus acts that take up about 20 minutes of the show are enough to satisfy your need for entertainment for over 2 hours.
Don't see it if you're expecting a musical that has compelling storytelling or an emotional arc that is earned. Or an ending that makes sense.
See it if You want to see amazing acrobatics. You are a huge fan of Cirque du Soleil and can't miss any of their world famous spectacles.
Don't see it if You are looking for a plot that makes sense ! This plot is beyond ridiculous ! You want to see a traditional Broadway musical, Paramour = NO
See it if You love a spectacular Cirque du Soleil show with amazing acrobatic feats that had the audience enthralled, plus a Broadway storyline
Don't see it if You want a playbill, as a 2-sided card is the only "playbill" you'll receive (no bio for any of the actors, etc).
See it if hmm.You like acrobatics and some big sets. You like "everything tossed in but the kitchen sink" with your musical numbers, some clever bits.
Don't see it if You're expecting usual Cirque du Soleil (it's not) or classic musical (it falls short). You don't fret someone will fall (they almost did.)
See it if you like Cirque de Solei, and do not mind long acrobatic routines, or grandiose, colorful and busy staging.
Don't see it if you want a strong storyline and traditional staging or do not like acrobatics.
See it if You get free or super cheap tixs, You love acrobatics; have no need for coherent story driven by music, love Cirque
Don't see it if You want a musical, this is a cirque show loosely tied together with a few songs; action constantly stops for performers to bow
See it if you can ignore a weak plot to enjoy the spectacular acrobatics and impressive theatricality, plus the eminently watchable Jeremy Kushnier.
Don't see it if you require any sort of story worth investing in. There simply isn't one here (unless "who will the bland girl choose?" qualifies.) Yawn.
See it if you love non-stop visual old-Hollywood fantasy escapism. The singing's pretty great too. Open you mind, sit back/relax, enjoy the spectacle.
Don't see it if you like the usual cirque-de-so-blah stuff. There's a story here so if you don't want to pay attention, this ain't for you.
See it if you've seen everything on Broadway and want to put your mind away and enjoy the physical feats of the performers. Don't come for a story.
Don't see it if you're seeking something remarkably thought-provoking or even new in story-telling. It's all about the spectacle. The Cirque troupe stuns.
See it if you love the Cirque Du Soleil shows mixed in with traditional Broadway story, songs and dances
Don't see it if you want a traditional Broadway style musical with a great story and less acrobatics.
See it if Not much of a story, but the Cirque du Soleil performers were at the top of their game. Great staging and very entertaining and enjoyable.
Don't see it if If you do not like acrobatic acts or if you find it hard to concentrate on simultaneous multiple stage activity.
See it if You want a Cirque du Soleil show -- but aren't really interested in theater with a compelling plot or interesting music and dance.
Don't see it if You want to save money.
See it if you want to see the ultimate marriage of Broadway and Cirque du Soleil. Though not the greatest show, it was entertaining.
Don't see it if you prefer more traditional and classic Broadway shows or the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil make you nervous!
See it if You're a Cirque fan, a fan of old Hollywwod, like musicals and great costumes.
Don't see it if You expect pure Cirque du Soliel. It's not their regular show. If you don't like musicals, this is not for you.
See it if you are new to Broadway & Cirque. If you are a fan of either, this show does not live up to what it could have been. Songs and Acts are good
Don't see it if you are expecting a mystical journey that Cirque is known for. When they introduce realism into the story, it becomes slow and boring.
See it if You would go see a Cirque show had you visited Las Vegas instead of NYC; 3 leads are very good; Cirque components are spectacular
Don't see it if Cirque-first action makes pulls focus from a forgettable score and paper-thin throwback B-movie plot
See it if you are willing to put up with a vapid score and book in order to catch some spectacular circus acts.
Don't see it if you are expecting a fresh story or some memorable music.
See it if You have nothing better to do. It's simply a cruise show on land. Not much to recommend it.
