Featured Reviews For Slava's Snowshow


Slava's Snowshow - TimeOut NY
SLAVA'S SNOWSHOW pushes the boundaries of family show to its highest standards and has been rewarded with more than twenty international awards, including an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, a Drama Desk Award, and a Tony Award nomination." Time Out New York: Such icecapades are not for everyone. Polunin himself wears a look of melancholy confusion-it's painted over his elastic features in black and white, with a round red nose at its center-and if you attend SLAVA'S SNOWSHOW without knowing what to expect, you may wind up with that expression, too. A preshow advisory would do well to insist that patrons must love clowns. How else to enjoy 100 minutes of vaguely amusing pantomime on a set that toes a fine line between crafty and cheap? Being under the age of 12 may help; the production might also pair well with milder psychedelics. But if you can embrace the logic of nonsense and surrender your personal boundaries to the spirit of the season, you may find this blizzard a blast.

‘Slava’s Snowshow’: Brilliant Clowns Provide the Messiest Fun You Can Have on Broadway - Daily Beast
The traditions of clowning in the show-where sitting at a chair at an angle, then falling off a chair multiple times, can seem puzzling and hilarious-are fascinating. The cast are marvelous. Not much happens, then a lot happens. If you find clowns endlessly enchanting, this is the show for you; if you find clowns unaccountably menacing, these preconceptions won't be entirely obliterated
