Plot Summary:
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 bond 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. With musical styles ranging from the vaudevillian "We Share Everything" to the sweepingly emotional "Who Will Love Me as I Am," this gorgeous musical from the composer of DREAMGIRLS will touch your heart as we share to journey to belong and find love.
