What's Slava's Snowshow Like?

Some call it the Russian Cossack version of Cirque du Soleil, but Slava’s Snowshow is a much less a circus and much more a musical performance show that is set in a dream-like winter vision filled with many comical tricks and surprises. The Snowshow is broken up into different winter themed scenes with each pushing the boundaries of what is thought to be possible on stage. The story follows the main character Slava, a curious clown, who explores the world around him and as he meets other funny and peculiar characters which take him in as their own family and change his life and outlook. The performers in the show astonish the audience with many surreal visuals like, colorful balloons that appear out of thin air and cover the theatre stage. The show also features floating sharks that swim around the room and make the theatre feel like an underwater ocean. The show is known for its grand finale, which covers the theatre in a magical fake snowstorm that leaves the audience spellbound and wondering if it was Slava the clown, or actually themselves, that were dreaming the whole time.

Is Slava's Snowshow Good for Kids?

The show is intended for children over eight years old

Slava's Snowshow on Broadway Background

Slava’s Snowshow was created in 1993 by the Russian theatrical artist Slava Polunin. The production first came to the United States in 2004 where it became an instant sensation among both audiences and critics alike. The show was first performed stateside at the Union Square Theatre (which is now named the Daryl Roth theatre) and is an off-Broadway theatre located right around the corner from NYC’s popular Union Square park. It was in this theatre that Slava’s Snowshow achieved the theatre’s highest grossing show to date. Slava’s Snowshow returned to NYC in 2007 and performed on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre. It was nominated for a Tony Award for “Best Special Theatrical Event” and won an Olivier Award for “Best Entertainment Performance” in the West End. This time around, acclaimed Broadway producers David Carpenter, John Arthur Pinckard and Hunter Arnold have worked on this new version of this holiday tradition.
