Slava's Snowshow

Posted on

Walking into Slava’s Snowshow is like strapping yourself into the very best ride ever at Russian Clown Epcot, where paper snow litters the aisles and a train chugs in the distance, preparing you for the journey ahead. Slava Polunin and his gaggle of perfectly bedraggled associates mix full-on audience assault — coating the theater in water, cobwebs, bubbles, and dry ice — with breathtakingly subtle characterizations that leave you awestruck until the end of this exquisite show provides the most flat-out spectacular moment Off Broadway has seen in years. Get there. You won’t want to leave.
