Following the success of the autism friendly Bello Mania, the New Victory Theater has partnered with AFS, Inc. to now include a season of autism friendly performances. The New Victory Theater introduces performing artists from around the world to extraordinary audiences in New York City, bringing kids to the arts and arts to kids.
Created in 1995 for young New Yorkers, their families and schoolmates, The New Victory Theater presents a diverse season of international companies at low ticket prices year after year. Through the theater’s award-winning education programs, The New Victory continues to provide access to schools and communities of New York City who seek to experience and engage with the work on our stages, often for the very first time. The theater’s contributions to the cultural landscape of the city were celebrated by the prestigious New York critics’ organization, The Drama Desk, which presented The New Victory Theater with a 2012 Special Award for “providing enchanting, sophisticated children’s theater that appeals to the child in all of us, and for nurturing a love of theater in young people.”
