The famous Siamese Twins, Violet and Daisy Hilton, have been the subject of numerous movies and documentaries since their venture into the US vaudeville and sideshow circuit in the 1930s. In 1997, their life story was adapted for a Broadway musical written by Bill Russell, titled Side Show. Russell also penned down the lyrics for the musical whereas Henry Krieger provided the music.

The show initially had a short run, but it has once again been revived under the direction of Bill Condon. Opened at the St. James Theatre on Broadway, this production features notable actors such as Emily Padgett, Erin Davie, Matthew Hydzik, Robert Joy and Ryan Silverman among others.

With love interests Terry Connor and Buddy Foster stepping into their lives, both Daisy and Violet realize that the very thing that makes them different… makes them extraordinary!

Side Show first premiered on Broadway in fall 1997 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. It was directed by Robert Longbottom and featured Alice Ripley as Violet Hilton and Emily Skinner as Daisy Hilton.
