Directed by Academy Award®-winner Bill Condon (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, Gods and Monsters) making his Broadway debut, this exciting new staging of SIDE SHOW has “the flash and velocity of a Hollywood motion picture” and “puts gripping emotion in the main tent” (Los Angeles Times).
Featuring a “supercharged score” (Charles Isherwood, The New York Times), SIDE SHOW includes new music by multiple Grammy Award® winner, Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, and Tony Award® nominee Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls), with book and lyrics by Tony Award® nominee Bill Russell, with additional book material by Bill Condon; choreography by Tony® & Olivier® Award nominee Anthony Van Laast (Mamma Mia, Sister Act), musical direction and arrangements by Sam Davis, and orchestrations by six-time Tony® Award nominee Harold Wheeler (Dreamgirls, The Wiz).
Based on the legendary Hilton twins, Daisy and Violet, SIDE SHOW follows their heartwarming search for first love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame and scrutiny under the spotlight. The world of SIDE SHOW is set against the backdrop of 1920's and '30s show business that seamlessly blend the worlds of carnival, vaudeville, and Hollywood glamour.
“Anyone not knocked out by this ravishing musical is hereby ordered to have their vital signs checked.” (Peter Marks,The Washington Post)
