About the Show

The Acrobuffos are back! Circus and science collide when these globetrotting clowns return with their sold-out spectacle, Air Play (New Victory 2018). With knowing smiles and suitcases full of surprises, this comedic duo elicits gales of laughter as they transform ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. This delightful, flightful homage to the power of air will take your breath away as the Acrobuffos goad gravity and make really, really, really high art out of the very thing we breathe.

The Acrobuffos goad gravity to make ordinary objects appear extraordinary.

Did You Know?

  1. Air Play features moments of masked audience interaction. If you are seated in the first six rows of the orchestra, be prepared for some up-close off-stage shenanigans and—for a lucky few—an onstage invitation.
  2. While the many powerful fans at play in Air Play move lots of air around the stage, rest assured that we recently upgraded our air filtration system with MERV-13 filters, and all the air in the auditorium is fully replaced after every performance.
  3. The Acrobuffos are New Victory LabWorks alumni! Since developing Air Play as part of LabWorks in 2014, they’ve brought the show to over 75 theaters on 5 continents, and are now returning to the New Victory stage for the second time.
