The Stephen Sondheim Theatre will host Slava's Snowshow on Broadway. The show is set to run until 5th January, 2020.
Slava’s Snowshow returned to Broadway on 11th November for a wintry takeover of the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. The holiday variety show will officially open on 14th November and continue its limited run through 5th January, 2020. Created by Slava Polunin, one of the 20th centuries leading Russian performance artists, Slava’s Snowshow has won several awards since its premiere in 1993, including London’s Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, New York’s Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, Edinburgh’s Festival Critics’ Award, Moscow’s Stanislavski Award, and Australia’s Sir Robert Helpmann Award, among others.
Inspired by Charlie Chaplin and Leonid Yengibarov, Polunin has handcrafted this masterpiece after decades of experience as a clown. Witness Slava and his clown friends as they journey through a winter landscape to find their inner childhood innocence. What’s unique about this show is that the story is unraveled without any words being spoken. The loose structure of the story allows the cast of clowns to improvise and interact with the audience, giving the audience members a different experience each night. The brilliance of Slava’s creation allows the audience to not just observe, but to be bang in the middle of all the explosive moments.

What it lacks in a distinct storyline, Slava’s Snowshow makes up for with surreal imagery, scintillating performances, and well-designed props and special effects. Many of its mind-blowing ‘ta-dah’ moments are accompanied by a blizzard of snow-like confetti. The collection of vignettes are presented in a loose order, amplifying the comedy at each stage. From clowns in makeshift boats to filling the auditorium with bouncy balls, Slava’s Slideshow is a savory blend of beautiful music, mime sequences, and clown comedy at its very best.
Joining show creator Slava Polunin on stage as fellow joy seekers are Artem Zhimo, Robert Saralp, Vanya Polunin, Georgiy Deliyev, Aelita West, Bradford West, Alexandre Frish, Nikolai Terentiev, Francesco Bifano, Spencer Chandler, and Elena Ushakova. Slava’s Snowshow is produced by David Carpenter, John Arthur Pinckard, and Hunter Arnold with production management by Tinc Productions and general management by KGM Theatrical. The show is presented in collaboration with Polunin and Gwenael Allan.
