Directed by Bill Condon (films Chicago, Dreamgirls) and inspired by the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, La Jolla Playhouse's production of the Tony Award-nominated musical Side Show follows the two sisters -- literally joined at the hip -- on their meteoric rise to fame during the 1930s and beyond. Track their personal and professional lives from circus sideshow freaks to vaudeville headliners as well as their lifelong search for independence and love. From the composer of Dreamgirls, Side Show features the songs "I Will Never Leave You," "Who Will Love Me As I Am?" and "Come Look at the Freaks." Learn More

The actor playing Hercule Poirot was very good, but was not matched by most of the other actors, who slipped in and out of not-very-convicing British accents. This production was slow (ended at 10:30!!) and it was very difficult to hear the actors. This was not helped by the rain on the roof of the theater (which must be made of tin) which drowned out what dialogue HAD been audible. The layout of the theater is very strange, with tables like a dinner theatre all on one level, so sitting in the back makes it hard to see the stage. My husband and I had to share an intimate table with two strangers, which felt odd. Also both time I have attended shows here there was a very loud wedding taking place across the hall (the theater is in a community center) which is very distracting during performances. All in all, I would avoid this theater. I can only give the event even the two stars I have because of the performance of the actor playing the starring role. I'f you love Agatha Christie, it might be worth seeing this play just for him--just make sure there is no hailstorm or you won't hear a thing.
A vintage Agatha Christie whodunnit, this 1930 hit marked the stage entrance of Dame Agatha's most popular detective, Hercule Poirot, into the mystery world. Sir Claud Amory, England's premier physicist, summons Poirot to a gathering but is dead before Poirot arrives. A must see for all mystery fans.
