Step right up!

Returning to Broadway is this revitalized, reinvented and revived version of the 1997 cult classic that delves into the incredible true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton and their graduation from the fellow attractions of the carnival, to a vaudeville success in their own right!

Born in England, the Hilton sisters had a tough life at the hands of their cruel Aunt who exploited them on the 'freakshow' circuit, before they were finally emancipated and grew to become a glamorous showbiz legend in their own right against the backdrop of America during the Depression era. They thrilled America and are still one of the most famous cases of conjoined twins in the world.

It's a carnival...

Amongst the other freaks of the side Show, the reptile man, the bearded lady, the half man-half woman, Side Show gives us a textured and lavish glimpse of the universal need to find love and find acceptance. Discover the real meaning of normality through a powerful and striking score by Henry Kriger.

Did you know?

The original production of Side Show gained four Tony nominations and has gone on to become a cult classic!
