'Sno Clowning Around: Slava Opens On Broadway'Sno Clowning Around: Slava Opens On Broadway
After enjoying an astounding 1,004 performance run at Off-Broadway's Union Square Theatre from September 2004 through January 2007, as well as being honored with the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Entertainment for his Old Vic run in London, Russian clown Slava Polunin has finally made it to the Great White Way. His Slava's Snowshow opens this evening at Helen Hayes Theatre.
Produced by David J. Foster and directed by Victor Kramer, Slava's Snowshow is described by its official site as thus:
There areas many descriptions as there are audience members. Snowshow is the beauty of a single snow flake as it gently falls and lands on your shoulder. Snowshow is the sound of an adult laughing uncontrollably at nothing in particular.Will critics find the Broadway incarnation wonderful? Find out tomorrow as I provide my critics' capsule.
Snowshow is the joy of believing that anything is possible. Snowshow is the sadness of a wave goodbye from a train station platform. Snowshow is the realisation [sic] that life really is wonderful.
