The people in the ticket booths were so incredibly helpful in answering my many questions. I wound up buying a membership - which I highly recommend if only for the discount on tickets - after seeing the shows coming up. I took my son to see Water On Mars and we had a blast! It was a great show. There... More

It took a lot of ingenuity to tear down a porn house and open a children's theatre on 42nd Street. The place succeeds because its a brilliant concept, and the woman who decided to import the best youth theatre from around the world to this lovingly restored gem of a theatre may have taken a risk when she started, but...

All the shows at the New Victory are usually exemplary, but the current show is a real winner. FLY - the story of the Tuskegee Airmen is remarkable - for the important historical content, for the quality of the acting, and for the extremely imaginative staging. It's only there through the 27th - try to see it.

Went to see a cirque de soleil-like performance of acrobats working on various wheeled bicycle apparatus, trampoline, trapeze work too. Nice music and hardly any talk. Kids 8-11 with us really enjoyed it. Other shows attractive for varied age ranges down to 3 or 4.

Took my 10 year old grandson who absolutely loved the show Cirque Mechanics. The performers were extremely talented, and put on a fun filled, exciting show. Highly recommend it!

Stunning dancing and dancers, colorful customs, vibrant choreography. I saw the show twice. It was just wonderful. I saw them in 2003 when they were in New York and I have been following them until finally they came again. It is magnificent and nobody should miss this show. The tickets are not expensive but the show is over the top!!!!

Live production of Robin Hood. Whimsical, Follows the general story of Robin Hood, with a few added laughs. Silly enough for kids 7+ to enjoy.. Adults won't be bored either

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
