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

Go see this one! It is face-paced, fun... edgy and entertaining.... filled with clever dialogue. I can see this play going on to New York. My only two recommendations would be to "lose" the bathroom scene... too gross and not funny. Make better use of the big screens, which were a distraction with nothing happening on them. This was an early page to the stage performance.... so I would love to see it again as more multi-media is implemented. ☆☆☆ Yvonne ☆☆☆
After stewing for 70 years in political disgrace (and presumed death), Herbert Hoover takes the stage in an interactive, rock-infused concert, to reclaim his legacy and save America in the process. Elvis' classic '68 Comeback Special serves as inspiration for Hoover's rock n' roll resurrection. This time around he's going to successfully drag us out of our economic Waterloo, come hell or high water. Award winning company Les Freres Corbusier celebrates the checkered legacy of one of our most vilified presidents in this hilarious new concert performance piece.
