Mission:
The New 42nd Street is an independent nonprofit organization established in 1990 by the State and City of New York with a mandate to revitalize a long-neglected stretch of 42nd Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue. The organization was entrusted with a 99-year lease on 7 historic properties, and opened the elegantly restored New Victory Theater in December 1995 as New York City's first and foremost performing arts venue dedicated to young people and families. The New Vic instantly transformed the local community and the City's cultural landscape, and emboldened The New 42nd Street to construct and operate the New 42nd Street Studios, which opened in June 2000 as a state-of-the-art facility replete with 14 rehearsal spaces, offices for 6 nonprofit dance/theater companies and a 200-seat theater, The Duke on 42nd Street. The New 42nd Street's remaining properties are subleased to cultural and commercial enterprises that are ensuring the vitality of the block for generations to come.
Results:
Since opening in 1995, The New Victory has introduced over 1.5 million kids and adults to a broad spectrum of performing arts from around the world.
