I have seen this show three times now....I love every aspect of do as all my friends who have also seen it! Friends who, like me, are both educators and practitioners of Performing we actually can appreciate the complexity of what would seem to some close minded people to be an over-simplistic and pointless exhibition of self indulgence... I can only assume that these people have seriously lost the child within...if indeed they were ever children who indulged in imaginative play!

Two adults and three grown up teenagers. None of us got it !! If you want to watch people dressed as clowns and whatever else it was on stage spending an hour sweeping snow on the stage then great. A 10 minute spell where a clown is answering alternate red and yellow phones, during which I fell asleep, and an indefinte ending.....just weird. One consolation........we were so perplexed we all started giggling.....instead of joining those that had already decided enough was enough. Taking out the break it was barely an hours entertainment, if you could call it that. Not great.

This was the worst £200 I have ever spent on the theatre and our family of six go often. There was no point, the music was dull, the clowns were dull and to our teenagers - sinister. Im afraid I can only assume that the good reviews were written by the clowns themselves - save your money and go to see something worthwhile.

People who don't like this are the sort that walk out after the first 20 minutes of a film. Don't read reviews. Don't listen to others opinions, good or bad. Don't watch YouTube videos. Don't dissect. Just go and openly try to enjoy. It's hoping to draw you in a little. Amuse you if it can. Play with you. And reward you a little for joining in...

Just seen this show again for the 3rd time and would still go back. Totally mesmerising, both humorous and, at times, poignant. Beautiful and clever in it's delivery with a haunting soundtrack. If you want all your shows to be the same perhaps it's not for you but if you want to experience something different and astounding it's a must see. Everyone I've ever recommended it to has not been disappointed.

I should not have been fooled by media reviews. I agree with Sue. The show was not funny and expect for some children there was no laughter. The show was broken into skits, each of which did not make sense. The audience is only holding out for the very end when the snow comes and the large balloons appear. By this point I was so bored and frustrated that I had not read more reviews that I could not enjoy it. This was a waste of money!

I wish I had read Sues review before last Saturday, this was one of the biggest disappointments I have seen, the only good thing about it was it only went for 1hr 40mins,including a 15min interval, for $120.00 I hoped to be entertained & was badly let down.

I've wanted to see this for so many years. The show is so simple, yet so exquisite. The music is incredible. The clowns are not too 'in your face'. The audience was constantly laughing and sitting in complete awe at the same time. Beautifully haunting. I'd definitely go again if I have a chance.

Well I think there may be something wrong with our taste!!!! Four of us went and all agreed. What a dull show - half a dozen clowns shuffling too and fro across the stage and little more. The snow storm at the end with the large balls coming into the audience was visually beautiful and fun, but the preceding hour and a half - BORING. Very very disappointed.
