Check out the storied history (it was the first Broadway burlesque theatre and 42nd Street's first porn theatre) and many names of this 42nd Street theater! (photo via @museumofcityny)⠀
.⠀
Theater mogul Oscar Hammerstein I opened this venue with a Venetian facade as the Theatre Republic in 1900. In 1902, its manager and theatre impresario David Belasco leased the building. He renamed the theatre after himself. When Belasco took over full operation of the venue, he undertook major work, installing an orchestra pit, a new lighting system and a modern stage with trap doors through which scenery could be hoisted. In 1910, Belasco's Stuyvesant Theatre on 44th Street took over the Belasco Theatre name, while this one returned to the name Theatre Republic.⠀
.⠀
By 1931, the theater was once again renamed, this time as Minsky's Burlesque, Broadway's first burlesque house. Upon the ban of burlesque shows in 1942, it became "The Victory," a second-run movie house. Just as it set the stage as a place to indulge vices of the 1930s, in the 1970s the venue became the first porn theater on 42nd Street.⠀
.⠀
The Victory cleaned up its act in the 1990s, and the stage was "once again graced by legitimate theater." It opened with the play "Crowbar" and a production of "Romeo and Juliet." It was acquired by the City and State to become part of the 42nd Street Development Project. The theater reopened as The New Victory Theater in 1995.⠀

From Theatre Republic, to Minsky’s Burlesque, to other uh, uses...The @newvictorytheater has certainly gone through quite a lot of iterations since 1900, before finally becoming a premiere destination for children’s theater in New York City. Head to NY1.com for more about the history of the oldest operating theater in NYC and what’s on tap for this season.
Our third and final new Front of House Manager is Tony Harris!
·
He says he grew up in an artistic family, but, "My first and fondest memory was in elementary school. I went to see my older brother perform in his high school productions of SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS and GUYS AND DOLLS. Just walking into the auditorium, I felt the rush—I knew I would do that for the rest of my life."
·
"Growing up and seeing shows with my family, I never saw theater staff that looked like me. It's great to see how the Usher Corps are changing the face of theater."
·
Make sure to say hi to Tony when you join us this season!"
For #ArtsEdWeek, we'll be getting to know our three brand new Front of House Managers. First up is Nicole!
·
She says, "I first fell in love with theater when my family brought me to shows at the New Vic at an early age. Then through my time with @rtkids, I was able to perform on stages—in fact, I appeared on the New Vic stage  twelve years ago in BRUNDIBAR. I've been in love with theater my whole life and #becauseofartsed I'm lucky to work in the field."
·
When you see her this season, make sure to give Nicole a big hello!
Tune into #OnStage on @ny1 to catch @fdilella chatting with Mary Rose Lloyd, our Senior Director of Artistic Programming, next Saturday September 15!
We are so proud to announce that we are a part of the @newvictorytheater 2018-19 LabWorks! HORSETALE goes into development -- more puppets, more music, three times the screens! #htlco #newvictorylabworks
Brimming with surprised and comic delights, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST puts a fresh spin on the classic tale this season!

This song (⬆️ rehearsal for tonights @bivoices concert) is the product of one of our outreach programs, in which ‬members of #BIVoices connect with, and mentor youth and families in need‭. ‬Together‭ they craft a personal song‭ ‬over the course of several weeks‭. Tonight @adrianevela performs her gorgeous song with her mentor @crystalmonee & other BIV members. 
I’ve had the honor and extreme pleasure of being able to sing with and support #BroadwayInspirationalVoices off and on for about 20 years and I’ve never been more proud to be associated with these extraordinary hearts and talents. All inspired and led by my friend and hero #MichaelMcElroy.

#SpeakingInDance | “This particular section is an ode to breakers’ floor work,” said the choreographer @rennieharris, whose company Rennie Harris Pure Movement is at the @newvictorytheater through Sunday. In “Funkedified,” Rennie takes inspiration from his childhood in Philadelphia to show how #hiphop dance and culture developed out of #funk, as demonstrated here by the dancers Shafeek Westbrook, Joshua Culbreath and Phil Cuttino — or, Mighty Mouse, SupaJosh @BboySupaJosh and @JipTheRuler. “The breaking era came in the generation ahead of me,” Rennie said, “but we were the younger kids who were seeing it and doing different things with it.” The show also celebrates Don Campbell, the inventor of locking, and the Campbell Lock Dancers, who Rennie was transfixed by when they performed on “Soul Train.” “I don’t think people realize funk music was the beginning of hip-hop music,” Rennie told the @nytimes writer @giadk. “I was born in ’64, so the ’70s was my landscape. This is kind of about one moment in the ’70s, with the locking and popping and breaking that I was surrounded by.” @jay_dockendorf made this video for #SpeakingInDance, our weekly series exploring the world of #dance.
RENNIE HARRIS: FUNKEDIFIED is tearing it up on our stage this week.

Bromance is a show coming to NYC this month and it looks DOPPPPPPE. It's a mix of parkour, b-boying, and acrobatics that might just be revolutionizing what "circus" means in 2018. Video + a link to tickets via link in bio! 📷: Chris Nash
"A Sick Day for Morris McGee” a charming puppet show based on the Caldecott medal winner "A Sick Day for Amos McGee” by Philip & Erin Stead is currently playing at the @NewVictoryTheater.
The story follows the daily routine of Morris McGee who takes the No. 5 bus to his job at the zoo. Every day, he lovingly attends to the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the owl and the rhinoceros (who always has a runny nose). The book is one that is worthy of it’s medal! And watching this beautiful adaption bring the story to life had my jaw on the ground. The entire show was performed out of what looks like an artist’s work table. The desk lamp sun rose above the setting and suddenly the hinged wooden characters were brought to colorful and humorous life. Through magnets and acute attention to detail the story flowed effortlessly and left the little ninja and I immensely entertained. The creators Maayan Resnick & Ayelet Golan are traveling from Israel and wouldn’t divulge exactly how long it took to create the incredible set. But let the children come get a closer view after the performance. A special touch to a special show. #TheReadingNinja #NewVictoryTheater #ASickDayForAmosMcGee #RoaringBrookPress

Good morning New York 🗽
Otto: The Autobiography of a Teddy Bear by @TomiUngerer | Tomorrow night #TheReadingNinja and I have tickets to a play called "Nivelli’s War” about two survivors of the concentration camps of World War II. One a magician, one a boy and how they helped each other after the war. I am looking forward to it, while being aware of the topic and the questions that may arise.

As our children get older, the history and reality of our world is a hard realm to move into. 
We want nothing but a carefree, joy filled existence for our children...forever. 
But sadly that’s not how things work, although protecting them from too heavy of knowledge too soon is important (especially growing up in NYC). When the time comes I think transparency, honesty, and a strong conviction of what side you stand on is the best approach to the world’s ugly truths, like what went on in World War II. 
Part of our education about the War has included the book Otto. A story told from the perspective of a time worn bear. His earliest memories are being sewn up and given to a jewish boy named David before WWII. David and his best-friend Oskar love playing with Otto and they all have a wonderful life together. Until one day David starts to wear a yellow star on his jacket. He and his parents are soon carted away by men in leather coats and uniforms. David decides to give his dear teddy bear to Oskar. Many lonely days pass for Oskar and Otto. But even gloomier days soon arrive when Oskar's father is drafted into the army and the bombings start. 
Otto survives an explosion in town but is separated from Oskar. His next few years are full of change as he finds himself with several different owners in all kinds of environments. 
The story ends with the serendipitous string of events that help reunite Otto with both Oskar and David. "And so,the three friends finally reunite, sharing the sorrows and pains of war and living a peaceful and happy life together.” Tomi's illustrations are always my favorite and his care in this story is admirable.

This story has helped to discuss World War II without causing undue fear. Do you have any other suggestions or tools to broach this topic with children?

Our Ushers practice their juggling skills for the last weekend of Water on Mars!
This past weekend we sat mouths agape at the insanity and wonder of the crazy juggling show currently at @NewVictoryTheater

60 minutes flew by as we tried keeping track on whatever was flying through the air. Pins, balls, rings, water bottles (with caps off), toilet paper rolls, and candy were just some of the things juggled at the delight of the audience. 
Makes you wonder how many times they practiced these incredible tricks 🤔
With bits of silent comedy twisted in, this show is super entertaining and not to be missed! If you're in NYC go see "Water on Mars" running through Feb. 26th
"Mother Africa: My Home" @newvictorytheater
LIVE @newvictorytheater with a look into Mother Africa: My Home playing through January 1st. Great family fun with a mix of modern circus acts and African dance and music.

That day you get to see one of the coolest shows on #Broadway, meet the cast to celebrate their 1,000 show worldwide and your mom can't take the time to brush your hair out of your face. #white @newvictorytheater
Last night we took #TheReadingNinja to see the #Gruffalo at the @NewVictoryTheater 
An awesome book turned into an awesome play. I was so impressed with The New Victory. A theater in the middle of Times Square devoted to children for the last 20 years.
"Committed to bring kids to the arts and the arts to kids, The New Victory is also the largest provider of live performance to New York City schools. Serving 40,000 kids each year!" There was no fourth wall at this performance and #TheReadingNinja had a blast joining the other kids in roaring like a Gruffalo in the deep dark wood.
If you live in NYC or ever plan on visiting with kids check out their schedule and cheap tickets 👏👌
And of course J.R. chose to sit next to the star of the show! He wasn't scared of his #DonnieDarko realness! https://goo.gl/cp7gIa #PaperPlanet @PolyglotTheatre @NewVictoryTheater #NewVic #JRhilton
