“Slava’s Snowshow,” a holiday show featuring clowns, will play a holiday engagement at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre this season.

The show, produced by David Carpenter, John Arthur Pinckard and Hunter Arnold, begins on Nov. 11, 2019 and runs through Jan. 5, 2020.  

This is the second time the show has played Broadway, after playing a limited engagement in 2008, for which it received a Tony Award Nomination for Best Special Theatrical Event.

Created by Slava Polunin, a popular clown in Russia, the show debuted at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival. 

The family show originally debuted in the U.S. in 2004, with the off-Broadway production running for more than 1000 performances,

“Slava’s Snowshow” takes over the Sondheim Theatre after “Beautiful” ends its run there on Oct. 27, 2019.

It joins several other holiday shows already scheduled for this season, including “The Illusionists” and “A Christmas Carol.”
