Before they achieved stardom, bubbles led a self-less existence giving our children a safe, pop-able plaything and improving naptime by providing a soundproof holding cell for the nation's snores. Celebrate the success of this humble soap-star with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get one orchestra-level ticket to the Gazillion Bubble Show (a $64.50 value, including facility fees) at New World Stages in Midtown. This deal is valid for performances through May 1, 2011, excluding February 19–23 and April 18–26. Lap seats for children under 2 years old are available for $20 (cash only) directly from the box office.
Captivating viewers on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Live! With Regis and Kelly, Gazillion Bubble Show entrances live audiences with a buoyant circus of bubble aerobics and effervescent tricks illuminated by a stunning laser-light show. The family-friendly foam festival keeps kids and adults entertained with the soapy stunts of 16-time Guinness World Record holder Fan Yang and his family of fellow soaponauts as they create bubbly wonders previously only imaginable to dishwasher denizens. During this 85-minute show, audiences will enjoy an interactive experience as huge bubbles take over the stage, thousands of small bubbles spin and intertwine throughout the auditorium, and seemingly healthy people encase themselves inside giant spheres of iridescent protection. See the schedule for a complete list of show times, as well as sneak peaks at the air-filled artistry.
