Slava's Snowshow, a Russian clown act featuring Slava Polunin which has played London and Toronto, will be coming to Broadway for a limited holiday visit this fall. The production is scheduled to move into the Belasco Theater on Oct. 13 for a run through Dec. 27. Its official opening is Oct. 27, according to the Boneau Bryan/Brown press office. Among Polunin's many visual feats are one in which he boards a train and then becomes the train, with smoke billowing out of his top hat. In another, he gets stuck in a web of unspun cotton and clambers over the seats in the auditorium, taking the web with him, until it envelopes much of the audience. In the show's most talked-about scene, he tears a letter into pieces, the bits turn into snow flakes, the flakes become a blizzard and gradually the entire auditorium becomes a raging, whirling, blinding storm that engulfs the audience knee-deep in snow.

Slava's Snowshow had a month-long run at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre last winter. No word as of now as to when tickets will go on sale.
