Catch Me, I've Fallen... for NYC

Looking down 42nd Street with The New Victory in the foregroundCompanies come from around the world to perform on the New Victory stage. Flip FabriQue is no exception—they traveled from Quebec for Catch Me!'s four-week run in New York City, trampowall and all. Catch Me! is a show full of breathtaking acrobatics and circusy hijinks, but the fun doesn't stop when the cast steps off-stage. There's still all of NYC out there to enjoy!

We asked a few of the members of Flip FabriQue about their time exploring the city, and they shared some lovely anecdotes. They also gave us some beautiful photos to share, like this gorgeous shot of The New Victory!

Tell us about the most fun thing you've done during your NYC visit. 
Christophe Hamel     I went to Central Park and Chelsea Market, which were awesome. I also saw Queen of the Night.
Hugo Ouellet-Côté     I went bike riding in Brooklyn. For dinner, I hopped around, tasting from place to place. I also went to a Yankees game.
Bruno Gagnon     I went to Central Park with my father. It was his first time—a great moment.

What has been your favorite meal? Dessert counts! 
Christophe Hamel     Baby back ribs. And burgers, lots of burgers! Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, and New York is pretty good for that!
Hugo Ouellet-Côté     The meat at Fette Sau BBQ.
Bruno Gagnon     DINNERS, DINNERS! I love them all. Also, it was Easter last week, so chocolate was a big favorite as well.

Describe your favorite New York spot—a place you might want to see again someday.
Christophe Hamel     There is a little park close to our place in Brooklyn. It's a nice spot to see Manhattan and relax, feet in the sand.

Bruno Gagnon     I love Times Square. I've come to New York five times already and it's always impressive. It's a great way to feel the city.
