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

The New Victory Theater near Times Square at 42nd & 7th is a beautifully maintained building dedicated to live productions aimed at children and teens. The current show "Cambuyon" is an entertaining combination of dance, drums and rhythemic vocals that kept our 3 generation family involved and clapping for the productions approx 1 hour run time. It's non-stop action loosely... More

The new victory theatre is a very special theatre. It curates the best entertainment from around the world geared to a younger audience and brings them to their NYC stage right in Times Square. The curation is very eclectic and we have never seen a boring or unoriginal show here. The program regularly changes. You won't find shows like these... More

We just walked there because we were informed that this very nice and old theater is having program for families. So we went there late afternoon just by curiousity and promptly were invited to see probing artistics from Australia and gave their final rehearsal. Our little daughter was impressed and so we were.

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.
