In their new show "Paramour," Cirque du Soleil puts their signature spin on a Broadway performance. Set in the world of Golden Age Hollywood, the show spins the tale of a young poet forced to choose between love and art -- with a blend of music and circus art while in the process.
Ruby Lewis, who plays leading lady "Indigo" in the show, told CBS News that it's an exciting new challenge for her. "It's brand new to me," Lewis said. "You have to be ready for anything, including flying in the air or balancing on someone's hand -- and for me that's the scariest part."
Jeremy Kushnier, who plays "A.J. Golden," chimed in that Lewis is a perfect example of how Broadway and Cirque du Soleil are crossing over. "[She's] hanging upside down, dancing her face off, singing, being thrown around," he explained.
While rehearsing ahead of live shows, Lewis told producers that she was willing to try anything. "That's a big mistake to say to circus people," Kushnier joked.
The show officially opens on May 25, 2016; previews begin on April 16, 2016.
