Slava's Snowshow Information

The family festive spectacular known as Slava's Snowshow is set to bring its unique wintry magic back to the Great White Way for a limited 2019 holiday season engagement.

Slava's Snowshow was created by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin, who originally staged its world premiere in Moscow back in 1993. A compelling mix of contemporary circus and absurdism, the show made a lasting impact in London's theatre scene, after opening at the Old Vic in 1997 and going on to win the 1998 Olivier Award for 'Best Entertainment.' More recently, it has continued to delight UK audiences with holiday engagements at the Royal Festival Hall in 2012 and 2017.  

Slava's Snowshow would finally make its Off-Broadway debut at the Union Square Theatre in September 2004, where it enjoyed a hugely successful run through January 2007 and was even handed the Drama Desk Award for 'Unique Theatrical Experience' in 2005.

Slava Polunin made his Broadway debut from December 2008 to January 2009, when his Snowshow played the Helen Hayes Theatre, resulting in a Tony Award nomination for 'Best Special Theatrical Event.' Now, over a decade later, the production returns to Broadway to entrance a whole new generation with its winter wonderland and its surreal form of clowning.

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. Each scene paints a picture: an unlikely shark swimming in a misty sea; heart-breaking goodbyes on a railway platform; an entire audience enveloped in a gigantic web; a wave of vibrant balloons bouncing off the fingertips of theatregoers; and a world-renowned roaring snowstorm of a finale that’s sure to leave audiences spellbound.
