About New Victory

New Victory opens new worlds to young people and families through extraordinary performances and education and engagement programs.

New Victory brings kids to the arts and the arts to kids in and beyond New York City. Powered by New 42, whose mission is to make extraordinary performing arts a vital part of everyone’s life from the earliest years onwards, New Victory connects its audiences to new cultures, artists and stories through its international programming online and in its historic Times Square theater.

“A standard-bearer of quality performing arts for young audiences in the United States” (American Theatre), New Victory is led by New 42 President & CEO, Russell Granet, and curated by Artistic Director, Mary Rose Lloyd, with a commitment to performing arts access, equity and inclusion.

A global leader in arts education, youth development and community engagement, New Victory has been honored by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities with the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award. New Victory has also been honored by Americans for the Arts with a national Arts Education Award and by the Drama Desk 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.”

New Victory Theater puts trust in young audiences, treating children’s taste as no less sophisticated than adults.
