Say Hello to the Freak Show! Photo and Video Roundup of Broadway-Bound SIDE SHOW

‚Äč

As BroadwayWorld reported earlier today, the much-talked about dazzling new production of SIDE SHOW will open on Broadway this fall at the St. James Theatre, it was announced today in New York City. It will be directed by Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Bill Condon (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, Gods and Monsters), making his Broadway directorial debut in an exciting new staging of the musical. SIDE SHOW will begin previews on Tuesday, October 28 with an official Opening Night on Monday, November 17.

It was also announced that, on the heels of their star turn at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Erin Davie and Emily Padgett will reprise their leading roles. CLICK HERE for BroadwayWorld's interview with the twins themselves, Davie and Padgett.

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, additional book material by Bill Condon.

Bill Condon's new production reimagines the world of Side Show, set against the backdrop of 1920's and '30's show business that seamlessly blends the worlds of carnival, vaudeville, and Hollywood glamour.

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.

Below check out highlights from the Kennedy Center, followed by clips from La Jolla Playhouse:
