The new production of Side Show, which was just named one of “The Best Musicals of 2014” by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times, will play its final performance on Broadway on Sunday, January 4, 2015, the show’s producers announced today. Discussions are currently underway for Side Show to make its London debut.
Side Show is currently playing at Broadway’s St. James Theatre, where it began performances on October 28, and officially opened on Monday, November 17, 2014 to mostly rave reviews. The production is directed by Academy Award®winner Bill Condon, making his theatrical directorial debut. For more information, please visit SideShowBroadway.com.
Side Show includes new music by multiple Grammy Award® winner and Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, and Tony Award® nominee Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls), with book and lyrics by Tony Award® nominee Bill Russell and additional book material by Bill Condon, and choreography by Tony and Olivier Award® nominee Anthony Van Laast (Mamma Mia!).
Side Show is inspired by the remarkable true story of the Hilton twins, Daisy and Violet, who were legends in their time and the highest paid performers on the vaudeville circuit. Side Show is their heartwarming search for first love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame and scrutiny under the spotlight.
