The Gazillion Bubble Show takes place at New World Stages, Stage 2. Located in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighbourhood, New World Stages is a popular and well-known Off-Broadway performing arts complex. This theatre is famous for playing host to outlandish, quirky and not your typical run-off-the-mill productions like Altar Boyz, Naked Boys Singing and of course, The Gazillion Bubble show.
Interestingly enough, this theater was constructed on the site of New York’s third Madison Square Garden and was initially opened as a multiplex cinema! After going through heavy renovations, it was reopened as Dodger Stages in 2004, before it finally became New World Stages in March, 2006. The theatre today has 5 different stages, with capacities ranging from 199 - 499, thereby making it an off-broadway stage. New World Stages also houses The Green Room, an upscale bar and kitchen, perfect place to get a drink before your show.

His work has earned him 16 Guinness World Records, and he was voted ‘Artist of the Year’ in Germany.
Fan’s shows have been featured at the National Museum of Science and Technology, Singapore Science Centre, Ontario Science Centre and the Discovery Science Centre. Apart from performing, Fan also works as a bubble scientist, having created The Ultimate Bubble Toy. The solution for this tor is made only by Fan, based on his knowledge and formula, and can be used to make stunning bubble creations.
Ana Yang is another Master of Bubbles and like her husband Fan, has been plying and perfecting her trade for the past 2 decades. She has entertained crowds all over the world with her fascinating and delicate performances, having performed in Australia, Canada, Europe Asia and all across the United States.

In the Yang family, the apple definitely does not fall far from the tree. Following the footsteps of his parents, Deni too has taken into the family occupation and has wowed and entertained fans around the world with his slick and smooth bubble tricks. He began his career on the stage at the tender age of four when he performed on RAI 1 Italian Television, and caught the attention of millions of people watching.

Since then, Deni has gone on to perform all around the world, starring in the ‘White Bubble Show’ in Seoul, Korea and ‘The Gazillion Bubble Show’ in Dollywood.
The youngest member of the Yang family to join the bubble business, Melody, like her brother, got into the world of bubbles at the age of three when she performed with Deni on Italian Television. After another performance with her brother at the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, Melody got a fan following of her own, thanks to her charm and bubble-wielding skills. Melody made her New York City debut with The Gazillion Bubble Show and she hasn’t looked back since.
Fan Yang’s brother, Jano Yang, is a multi-talented and hugely skilled ‘bubble artist’. Born in Vietnam and growing up in erstwhile Yugoslavia, Jano attended ballet school and also learnt Judo. He eventually went on to become a National Judo Champion, having an affinity for fighting and defense sports. His many talents include acrobatics, juggling, pantomiming, clowning and of course, the family tradition of creating magic with soap bubbles. As a bubble artist, Jano has a ton of experience, having performed at the Monte Carlo Casino, Crazy Horse Paris and even on the Costa Cruise Line for 5 years. He joined his brother, Fan, in the year 2004 and has been performing with the family ever since. Most recently, he was on stage at the “Mega Bubble Show” in Las Vegas and “Fan Yang’s Bubble World” in Seoul.
“The Gazillion Bubble Show presents a fantasy world that hinges on the mystical allure, aesthetic pleasure and spirited promise of precarious pockets of air. While it’s undeniably kooky, the show is a welcome change of pace for kids who are constantly inundated with overtly commercial, Disney-esque entertainment”
- Time Out New York
“Every trick is a treat to watch. The kids watching often yelled out “wow!” and “holy cow!” and sometimes it is hard to restrain yourself from exclaiming out loud as well. The music, lights, and videos that supplement the bubbles make it a real show, but don’t distract from the beauty and awe of the bubble mastery.”
