About Slava's Snowshow

One of the most successful international tours of all time, Tony® Award-nominated SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW returns to Broadway for 8 weeks only! The romantically wistful theatrical adventure will be at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre for a limited holiday engagement. Unleashing a breathtaking artistic thrill ride for audiences of all ages and languages, the show offers a dreamlike vision that overflows with magical dynamism and humorous antics, set within an absurd and surrealistic world.

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW made its American debut in 2004 and became an instant theatrical sensation, breaking the record for highest grossing show in the history of the Union Square Theatre. Now a theatrical classic, 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. An experience unlike any other, SNOWSHOW has been a favorite of audiences and critics alike. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times says, “My heart leapt. SNOWSHOW induces waves of giggles and sighs of pleasure.”

Each night, the Stephen Sondheim Theatre will transform into a winter wonderland now that “Slava’s Snowshow” blew back in to New York City. Created and staged by celebrated Russian clown Slava Polunin, the theatrical event returns to Broadway for the first time in over a decade. The eight-week limited engagement features a cast of 10 clown performers, who create elaborate, picturesque scenes and mime their way through the snowy world that comes to life within the theatre.

Since “Slava’s Snowshow” premiered in Moscow in 1993, the acclaimed theatrical work has received numerous awards, including the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. An ideal show for children — or the child within — the 90-minute Broadway blizzard promises “humorous antics” set inside a “dreamlike” world. Plan to wear your parka because the clowns’ shenanigans include massive snow webs, water guns, and endless amounts of confetti.
