Grand reopening set for Yakov Smirnoff Theatre

A 2023 storm left Russian comedian Yakov Smirnoff's theater damaged, and left the performer with no stage on which to entertain.


A fantastic family of entertainers, The Duttons, opened their hearts and their theater to Smirnoff, who completed his 2023 season at their newly remodeled 76 Country Boulevard venue. Ironically, in the year prior, The Dutton Family Theater suffered severe smoke damage from a small structural fire, and Smirnoff graciously invited The Duttons to perform at his Highway 248 theater in 2022.


Smirnoff is back at home in his own theater now, with a new-for-2024 show and a grand reopening scheduled.


Join Yakov and the cast of his new variety show—including ventriloquist and comedian Jim Barber—for a grand reopening event on Wednesday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the newly restored theater.


For tickets, visit Smirnoff's website,, or call 417-336-3838.
