Straight up from the land down under, the Aussies of Circus Oz have returned to the New Victory Theater for a month-long stay.
Shout out “g’day” and “welcome back” to the mob from Melbourne as they present their bold, bodacious, and brassy brand of big top zaniness. Featuring live rock music and larrikin irreverence, musicians double as acrobats, acrobats double as jugglers, jugglers double as trapeze artists, and everybody is a comic. You can’t sit still when the Hammond Brothers jump across the stage in their juggling jubilation or stifle a gasp as Shane and Mason swing atop the audience in a death-defying catch-and-release trapeze act.
“Circus Oz Holiday Show” at the New Victory Theater, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Dec. 30. Tickets are $14-$36. Performance times are 2 and 7 pm.
The New Victory Theater [209 W. 42nd St. between Seventh and Eighth avenues in Midtown; (646) 223–3010; www.newvictory.org].
