This show defies both physics and gravity with dizzying, back-bending and bench pressing juggling, human swing sets, and sky high stunts that will bring you to the edge of your seat.

Join Cirque’s 42FT: a Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels charming host and incredibly talented (and FEARLESS might I add) in this modern interpretation of the Victorian era circus caravan. Go back to when circuses of the late 1800s rolled into towns across America to awe and entertain. Who says time machines don’t exist?

May we suggest…

New Victory Theater is in the heart of Times Square on 42ndstreet between 7thand 8th Ave. Before or after the show take advantage of the trip in and walk up to 49th street between 5th and 6th avenues to see the gorgeous Rockefeller Christmas tree; the tree this year is from our home state just north of the city (Florida, NY). Frozen fans or not – head over to fifth avenue to see Sak’s Fifth Ave. windows and light show (every 10 minutes). It is epic every year; this year more than ever in the spirit of Frozen II’s release this holiday season!
