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 love world-class pantomime which transports you into a magical world. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, really great at capturing emotions
Don't see it if you don't like pantomime or immersive theatre. Immersion mainly in the orchestra but also a bit in the mezzanine.
See it if you want to see what feels like the weirdest trip, but in a mostly cute way
Don't see it if you're looking for any plot or don't like audiences with lots of kids
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 You enjoy the unusual. A very entertaining show for all ages, with very little speaking but very clever physical comedy
Don't see it if You don’t appreciate unusual, original entertainment
See it if you haven't yet because the blizzard at the end is AMAZING. And the gigantic balls that come out into the audience are pure joy.
Don't see it if you don't like mime/clown stuff and even though the ending will make it totally worth it, you don't think it would.
See it if You like to have fun laugh get sprayed Snowed on with confetti and more Great staging and effects Fun show with clowns
Don't see it if Want to see a show with a story or plot
See it if You want to see a quick, unique and fun, funny show that is good for all ages.
Don't see it if You don't like shows with no verbalization or want to see a show that lasts more than 80 minutes.
See it if clever but delightful clownade - in which grownups engage as enthusiastically as children
Don't see it if if don't like clowns - even wonderful ones
See it if you can view through the lense of nonsensical wonder and awe. also, i think i recommend this on drugs?
Don't see it if you want some kind of clear story line, it is a bunch of interesting clowning that doesn't always make any sense
See it if you can see past the audience using their phones to film/take pictures of the show. (With the flash on!)
Don't see it if you can't handle the audience using their phones to film/take pictures of the show. (WITH THE FLASH ON!)
See it if you enjoy old-fashioned clown acts, that are very dry and silent and touching. The ending is quite spectacular.
Don't see it if Are looking for lots of glitz or raucous laughter. This is more staid, but lovely.
See it if You want to feel warmth in a snowstorm. Childlike innocence and simple storytelling that you can analyze in your own ways.
Don't see it if You need a plot. Theres a very loose one....if that. Clowns are also not everyone's cup of tea
See it if looking for something kids and adults can thoroughly enjoy together. Full of delight, charm, wit, creativity, warmth.
Don't see it if You need narrative or don't like whimsy.
See it if you appreciate physical theatre and clowning (for kids, and adults!) that tells a story you can interpret about life. A fun time!
Don't see it if you do not like seeing theatre without dialogue and an obvious heightened storyline. Do not appreciate clowning.
See it if you believe in magic and snow and fun and clowns who mime and move to all sorts of music.
Don't see it if you don't like snow. There is lots of it. Or shows with no dialogue.
