Slava’s Snowshow Information

One of the most successful international tours of all time, Tony Award-nominated Slava’s Snowshow returns to Broadway for 8 weeks only! Created by Slava Polunin, this wistful theatrical adventure unleashes a breathtaking artistic thrill ride for audiences of all ages and languages. It offers a dreamlike vision that overflows with magical dynamism and humorous antics, set within an absurd and surrealistic world.

Born in a small town in central Russia, Slava Polunin quickly became a fixture on Russian stages and TV, sharing his gifts and continuing to redefine the art of clowning with his poetic and poignant approach to comic performance. 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. The New York Times says, “My heart leapt. Snowshow induces waves of giggles and sighs of pleasure.”
