So I just saw the casting notices for next season at La Jolla and it appears Side Show is getting a revised production there. The Boss is not listed amongst the characters, but Sir and Auntie are both there. So it seems they are going with a new approach for at least the first portion of the show and digging closer to the real life situation of Daisy and Violet. There are a couple of other new characters as well in the breakdown.

I'm curious to see and hear what this new revised script is like.

Did the Kennedy Center production fall through? Bill Condon was going to direct a revised version at the Kennedy Ctr in 2013...interesting...

To my understanding the Kennedy Center production will be in Spring 2014

Jessie and Abby Mueller? Real sisters!!

Seriously though (though they'd be brilliant), wasn't there a reading with Betsy Wolfe involved sometime recently?

Didn't want to have to start a new thread but does anyone have a link to somewhere I can find some photos from the original Broadway production? Google doesn't show very many

Betsy Wolfe and Erin Davie have been involved in several readings of the revised SIDE SHOW.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

Besides what you can easily find on google I have not been able to find any more photos from the original production. Trust. I have looked.

and the San Diego Zoo just debuted the baby panda. It's diner time right about now and you can watch him munching away on the panda cam on sandiegozoo.org.
The Side Show revival is just another reason for me to revisit one of my favorite towns, and I have a craving for fish tacos.

I thought the Kennedy Center version is a collaboration with La Jolla.

Yes the Kennedy Center production was announced to be in collaboration with La Jolla.

The new artwork for the production taken from the Kennedy Center website. I like it!

La Jolla Playhouse is using different artwork.

That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Betsy Wolfe was offered this production and (regretfully) passed due to conflicts with another project.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

Nuts! I was hoping she'd be back.

Now I wonder who? (Leigh Ann Larkin still comes to mind.)

I would assume with Betsy being offered the role, Erin Davie may play Violet

With Betsy not playing the role, I'd think that puts Erin Davie's chances of being involved in jeopardy.

When I saw Last 5 Years with a friend, said her next project was a new Broadway musical, but she couldn't speak of what they may be because it hasn't been officially announced. Glad she is working, I really think she has big things a head of her! I realize she's been on the scene for years, but nice to see her recognized. I agree with the poster that commented that if Betsy was out, Davie probably is in jeopardy- shame I would've liked to see that!

Anyone have any guesses on what it could be? Maybe Honeymoon in Vegas?

Good Lord. The La Jolla artwork is awful. The twins did not have red hair and were not dominatrixes. You can't really see that they're connected, though I suppose you could say the same of the Kennedy Center one.

I leave the room smiling.

"The twins did not have red hair and were not dominatrixes."

Can't say that I got dominatrix from that, just circus performers. It's not like they are in black leather and fishnets.

Is it wrong that I hope for a revision where the twins are played by Matt Cavenaugh and Matt Bogart?
