About this show

New York's ultimate theater for kids and families holds its annual New Victory Theater Family Benefit to raise funds for the New Victory Theater Education Program and the New Vic/New 42 Youth Corps. The benefit is made up of one performance, and then a variety of food and kids activites featuring New Vic New York Artists. The performance at this year's benefit is Circus Oz: The Laughing at Gravity Tour. Brashly turning circus arts on its multi-colored head, Circus Oz makes the ordinary extraordinary by giving traditional circus acts a twisted, rock-infused makeover. Fueled by the rhythms of an onstage band, a popcorn vendor finds herself twisted in knots (literally); an accordion player in a bolero jacket thwarts off the oncoming advances of a BMX stunt biker; an orchestra's conductor lets his flight-prone, upright bass get the best of him; and seven pole climbers race up and rocket down a 40-foot tower of terror. The 14-member group sets the stage ablaze with an arsenal of fiery juggling pins, blazing hula-hoops, flaming drumsticks and more in the hottest finale to ever hit 42nd Street.
