Bello Mania
Bello Mania from Sarasota, Florida

Nock Nock. Who's there? Back by popular demand, it's Demetrius Alexandro Claudio Amadeus Bello Nock, the gravity-defying dude with the foot-high hair. Returning to the New Vic stage (and his 44-foot sway pole) in BELLO MANIA, "America's Best Clown" (TIME Magazine) delivers brand new wacky antics and favorite daredevil tricks. Whether you're coming back for more or seeing it for the first time, 2013 Drama Desk nominee BELLO MANIA is bound to be the HIGHlight of your spring break.

"It's hard to imagine anyone, young or old, not having a wonderful time at Bello Mania."
"Hair-raising stunts, impressive athleticism, a sprinkle of surprise and plenty of just plain goofy, good fun"Herald-Tribune (Sarasota) "A cheerful triumph of athletic comedy" New Jersey News Room

Getting to Know Bello Nock


Bello's personal motto? "No audience member should need more than the edge of his seat!" He's amazed over 40 million people with his live performances over the last decade—and, last year, made his New Victory debut with his first self-produced show. Sold-out houses ooh'd and aah'd, giggled and gasped as he bounced breezily on trampolines, trained invisible dogs and then climbed to higher heights than anyone else in New Victory history. There's no one more daring, more funny, more endearing or more deserving of an encore than Bello.


All The Way From...

Sarasota, Florida
...Sarasota, Florida


It seems fitting that Bello calls Sarasota home—the Canopy Walkway in the nearby Myakka River State Park puts you 25 feet above the ground and extends 85 feet through the tree-tops.

Your Trip to Our Theaters


Just steps from the Times Square-42nd Street subway stops, The New Victory is a 499-seat, historic, jewel box theater restored to its original glory. The majority of our shows are presented here, in the oldest operating theater in New York City. Down in the lobby you'll find stroller parking, free lockers to store your stuff, healthy snacks and New Vic merch to take home.


Located inside the New 42nd Street Studios building, The Duke on 42nd Street is home to New Victory programming that requires a more intimate space.


Located just down the block from The New Victory Theater, the New 42nd Street Studios host New Vic shows geared towards our youngest audience members. The space allows for a variety of seating configurations, including options for floor seating, making it easy to move around and step out of the theater area if you and yours need to do so. Stroller parking and changing tables are available.
