Show Review by Susan Coronel: Something at New Victory Theatre
April 3rd, 2017
On Friday, March 31, my nearly six-year-old daughter and I attended the first performance of the U.S. premiere of Something, a contemporary cirque show from Milan, Italy, now running at the New Victory Theater in Midtown. I wasn’t sure what to expect. We’ve seen our share of circuses- the Big ...
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Show Review by Robin Gorman Newman

January 22nd, 2017
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL's first show created specifically for Broadway, impresses on the spectacle level but hits considerable flat notes in the musical department.
