The Five Best Stoner Moments of Slava's Snowshow

Looking for a long, strange trip? Set your GPS to the Arsht Center.

That's where Slava's Snowshow opened last night, returning to Miami to greet a crowded house filled with children and adults alike. It was decidedly a family affair. The kids around us giggled with glee, high on youth, at the antics of a strange little man in yellow and his supporting cast of helicopter-headed clowns. Their parents chuckled right along with them, marveling at the colorful lighting, stage design, and personalities on stage.

Uncommonly for Arsht Center shows, drinks were allowed inside the theater. But y'know what would've really complemented the show? Drugs, man. Like, a ton of drugs.
