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

The New Victory Theater offers excellent performances for children. This is the third year I have attended performances with my grandson who is now 8. Today we saw Robin Hood which was wonderful for all. It was an excellent performance by the Seattle Children's Theater. They captivated the audience with clever dialogue, innovative staging and audience participation. They are offering... More

THere are a number of shoes directed at children and have been here twice with grandchildren. the seats fit them fine but for adults whose rears are larger it is a tight squeeze. It seems that the entry ways in and out are a bit small for all of the people but that is the way it was built. The... More

Very well organized, clean, excellent accoustic, everywhere you are seated you can see all, professional staff. They offer "boosters" to seat the children, if necessary.

The theater is located on 42nd Street and their shows are excellent for kids and adults. Our granddaughters loved both Catch Me and Cambuyon. The staff at the theater is welcoming and helpful. The show is presented without an intermission and it is just the right length to keep the kids attention. The theater is run very professionally and the... More

We recently saw the show "Catch Me" at the New Victory Theater. I was able to get seats a week out, they were the last ones left, other than random seats here and there. So glad, my granddaughters, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. We were mesmerized by the skill and talents of the actors. I would not hesitate... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
