NEW YORK — A witty play about Robin Hood, a cycling-inspired circus, musicals of the classic books "Caps For Sale" and "The Gruffalo" and a look at the brave Tuskegee Airmen are among next season's offerings as The New Victory Theater celebrates its 20th anniversary.

A total of 16 productions — including five U.S. premieres — are on tap from the city's first and only full-time performing arts theater for kids and their families.
