Theater: Helen Hayes Theatre / 240 West 44th Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

Russian’s greatest clown strings together a series of breathtaking images performed to popular music. A giant cobweb stretches over the entire audience; a raging blizzard coats the audience in snow; giant helium-filled beach balls are kept afloat by the viewers. Lyrical, hilarious, poignant and brilliant.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Slava’s Snowshow

    December 7, 2008: "Global warming is seriously bad news for polar bears and other arctic critters, but it’s been hell on some unendangered species too, like snow-loving New Yorkers. Having grown up in a sunny California suburb, in a family that regarded skiing as a deplorably extravagant way to acquire a broken leg, I became snow-crazed as soon as I started visiting New York in the chillier months."

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Slava’s Snowshow

    December 7, 2008: "Upon entering the Helen Hayes Theatre, you’ll notice the rectangular pieces of white paper that cover the floor. It’s snow. Or at least it’s supposed to be. You can pick up and crush it in your hand. Or maybe throw a little at your neighbor."

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Slava’s Snowshow

    December 7, 2008: "The hilarious yet haunting winter spectacular Slava's Snowshow, created by and starring master clown Slava Polunin and now playing a limited engagement at the Helen Hayes Theatre, is literally taking Broadway by snowstorm. Previously seen in New York a few years ago at the Union Square Theatre, the show is filled with magical images -- including a truly impressive blizzard that blows through the entire theater in the show's finale."

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Slava’s Snowshow

    December 7, 2009: "It's amazing how an infusion of cash can transform a show. "Slava's Snowshow," an offbeat, otherworldly clown show created by master Russian clown Slava Polunin, has cleaned up its endearingly scruffy face since its 2004 Off Broadway engagement. Comfortably installed (until Jan. 4) in that most accommodating of intimate Broadway houses, the Helen Hayes, the refurbished show boasts fresher set pieces, sharper lighting, cleaner costumes, better beach balls, more "snow" -- even more clowns. And if one should whisper that some of the magic has evaporated, who would hear that voice above the screams of laughter of a delighted audience?"

  • TALKIN' BROADWAY REVIEW OF Slava’s Snowshow

    December 7, 2008: "Whether you prefer sampling childlike joy through the eyes and experiences of actual children or through the hands, feet, and mouths of artists skilled in creating ironic distillations of it for more sophisticated palates, you’ll get your fill at Slava’s Snowshow. The warming spectacle that’s just opened at the Helen Hayes, where it’s running through January 4, asks only that you be open to whatever it throws at you."
