As the winter gets burningly cold here in Manhattan, Slava's Snowshow heads for Los Angeles. My piece on it for my old hometown paper is here. UPDATE: There's a weird cut that happened to Slava's penultimate quote, at least online. The original version is here (missing words in bold):
"As a child, you go to pick up one thing, and suddenly you get affected by another thing and you forget about the first one," Polunin explained. "So yes, we start the show with a suicide attempt, because the man feels that there is no escape. But he sees that life is so interesting, he just forgets about that first impression he had."
Kind of inverts the meaning minus those words.
