TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE THE LYRIC THEATRE IN MAY 2017TO ALLOW FOR RENOVATIONS, CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO RELOCATE HIT BROADWAY SHOW PARAMOUR
Even theaters need to fix up every so often. The Cirque du Soleil Paramour, performed by the amazing Canadian group, will be going dark at the Lyric Theater while it undergoes a face lift.
The Lyric Theatre (213 West 42nd Street) will close temporarily, beginning May 2017, to undergo renovations. Cirque du Soleil Paramour will continue to perform at the Lyric Theatre until April 16, 2017, before relocating to another theater.
“We will be sad to part with Cirque du Soleil at the end of April 2017, by which time they will have completed a very successful year on Broadway. The fact that Cirque du Soleil chose to debut its first Broadway show – a great achievement – at The Lyric, was an honor for us at ATG,” commented Mark Cornell, CEO of Ambassador Theatre Group.
Cirque du Soleil is currently in discussions with several theater owners in New York and abroad who are interested in welcoming this unique production, including Stage Entertainment for a production in Germany in 2018.
“ATG has been a great partner for Cirque in this exciting first chapter for Paramour. Following our discussions with ATG, we reached a mutually beneficial agreement and it’s clear for us that our decision to move the show is the right one to ensure its long-term success,” said Cirque du Soleil Theatrical CEO, Scott Zeiger.
Tickets for Cirque du Soleil Paramour at the Lyric Theatre are currently on sale through April 16, 2017. For more information on Paramour and performance schedule, please visit: www.cirquedusoleil.com/paramour
