Synopsis

Side Show

$9.99

Bill Russell & Henry Krieger

Published by Samuel French Inc

9 Female

Based on the true story of Siamese twins Violet and Daisy Hilton who became stars during the Depression, Side Show is a moving portrait of two women joined at the hip whose extraordinary bondage brings them fame but denies them love

Told almost entirely in song, the show follows their progression from England to America, around the vaudeville circuit and to Hollywood on the eve of their appearance in the 1932 movie Freaks

"Daring, enthralling ... [with] passion, empathy and directness [that is] reflected in the tidal pull of the music and the winning simplicity of the lyrics.... Grafts the Hilton sisters into the hearts of their audience" ~ N.Y. Times

"A bright and moving musical.... From the first, almost Brechtian scene the show completely holds interest.... A rousing blast off for the Broadway season" ~ N.Y. Post
