Enhanced Ventilation & Air Filtration

We have upgraded our air filtration system with MERV-13 filters. The air in the auditorium will be fully replaced after every performance.

Guests should try to maintain social distance whenever possible in our lobbies, auditorium and restrooms as directed by signs and New Victory staff. Elevator capacities will be clearly posted.


A selection of pre-packaged light snacks and beverages will be available in the New Victory Cafe.

Space for stroller parking will be provided, as well as free lockers to store your belongings, but we ask that large bags or backpacks be left at home. All bags are subject to inspection.
