Artistic Programming

New Victory discovers performances from around the globe that excite and move us and celebrate different perspectives and experiences.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mary Rose Lloyd, New Victory attends hundreds of live productions each year, visiting venues as well as international, national and local festivals to find adventurous work for our stages. Featuring artistic disciplines and traditions from many cultures, every season includes a mix of performing arts genres with shows for a wide range of ages.

Award-winning Dedication

New Victory is a premier New York stage and the standard-bearer of family performing arts in the U.S. Several New Victory shows have been recognized with Tony, Obie and Drama Desk Awards. New Victory has received a special Drama Desk 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.”

There’s more sheer inventiveness and wonder in a single New Victory season than in most venues combined. Take your kid! Or a niece and nephew. Or simply treat your inner child.
