From the show:
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.
See it if you'll sit thru subpar material for a few gd moments. I was bored & felt assaulted (water sprayed, "smoke," bubbles, clowns climb on seats).
Don't see it if you want beauty and magic. Very little charm, no insightful story-telling. Panders to audience. VERY male...where are women? VERY white.
See it if You want absurdist take on clowning w a few good visuals, spoken gibberish, some intense staging effects, no plot, good sound track.
Don't see it if Don't want to get wet, have blizzards of confetti shot cannon-like, actors stepping on you, a huge inescapable net thrown over you. UGH.
See it if You take a young child who will find joy in the littlest things. I may not have enjoyed the show but I did enjoy hearing the children laugh.
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy audience participation. You will get wet, you will be covered in fake snow, you will be touched by actors. My nightmare.
See it if Just for this kids. Plot? I like clowns, I am a clown, So I’m told, however, this clowning was not for me.
Don't see it if They throw all this fake snow on you and it’s very invasive of your personal space.
See it if you appreciate the art of "clowning" and/or you have young kids who enjoy clowns. The music and sound drive the entire show.
Don't see it if you want more than a few moments of fun and poignancy. When the clowns engage the audience (the interval & the ending), then it's mildly OK.
See it if If you love pantomine and no dialogue or storyline. I found the show very dull and boring. Show is good for very young children.
Don't see it if If you are looking for lively happy clowns or a show with a storyline.
See it if you like creative staging, a good mixture of comedy and drama, and strange theatre
Don't see it if you are scared of clowns. please dont see it if you are scared of clowns. i cried. seriously. other than that see it's an Experience
