Client Focus: Gazillion Bubble Show
The Gazillion Bubble Show has struck wonder in hearts young and old on stages across the world.
The mesmerizing, family affair of a show was created in 2007 by international bubble artist, Fan Yang. A former circus performer, Yang holds sixteen Guiness Book World Records for brilliant feats, such as making the world’s biggest bubble—a bubble so big it enveloped 181 people; the most soap-bubble domes inside of one another; the longest soap bubble wall, etc. He brought his master bubble skills to the stage with the help of his wife Ana, who has been performing with him ever since their circus and street days juggling, tumbling, and doing martial arts-type routines.
Together, they trained their two children, Deni and Melody, as toddlers, and cousin Jano, as well. As Deni says, “When you’re three or four years old, it doesn’t feel like practicing. It feels like playing.”
Since the New York beginnings of the Gazillion Bubble Show, Milstein Law Group has regularly helped the Yang family with all of their legal matters. As well as the five family members who perform the show, there is a crew of fifteen employees from around the world. MLG has provided all of the legal immigration services for all of the employees for years.
“It has been very effective, a very positive experience for us. That’s why we’ve been partners for so long,” Deni says. “Some of our employees have been with us for ten years or so, and MLG has kept us all consistent, issuing green cards and visas, communicating about regulations, and making sure to keep us in compliance on a regular basis. It is very critical, you know. We continue to love working with them and I hope that we continue to do so for many more years.”
The Yang Family has performed on stages worldwide. They have also wowed television audiences on The Oprah Winfrey show, Good Morning America, David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, The View, CBS Sunday Morning, and many other TV shows and networks. After living and traveling in a kind of nomadic existence for several years—from Vietnam to Serbia, Paris, Belgium, Switzerland, Australia, China, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Canada, etc., most of the family is now settled in New York City where the show has a home off Broadway, at World Stages on West 50th Street. Incorporating a mix of art and science, the show caters to young children and their families, “including giant bubbles that take up the entire span of the stage, children being caught inside bubbles, light shows featuring bubbles of all colors of the rainbow, and even an underwater bubble extravaganza that would have you believing you were exploring the depths of the crystal clear Caribbean waters.” Many families become repeat viewers so that all of their children, newborns on up, can experience the wonders.
