Cirque du Soleil has been taking audiences’ breath away on the Vegas Strip and around the world since 1984. For the first time ever, the French Canadian theatrical phenomenon is hitting New York City on the Broadway stage. Enter “Paramour.” The gravity-defying Cirque du Soleil spectacle makes its Great White Way debut this month, telling the story of a beautiful young actor working in golden age Hollywood who must choose between her love for the stage and her love for a man. The talented Kat Cunning is one of the show’s headlining dancers. She gives Backstage a peek at the offstage magic, and it has us all getting in the glamour mood!

Every Sunday off I perform with my namesake band, Kat Cunning. We dedicated this one to my favorite pop star, the late Prince.

Getting into the glamour mood!

Getting excited about my wig, which has gone through as many transformations as my name.

Getting in the Broadway mood with my girls Sheridan and Sarah!

At the first preview, we received these wonderful original chocolate bars from a dedicated fan! Cirque fans are the best!
