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

A fun one man show full of pop culture references and hilarious dialogue (with unseen and unheard characters). The show is about a young man struggling to reconcile his real-life as an underappreciated tech guy with his fantasy-life as leader of an online army of computer nerds. At the end of the show, the actor engages with the audience about the development of his show and about the dichotomy of the modern world between our human selves and our online personas. It was a very enjoyable and thought-provoking afternoon.

It’s the most important day of “computer-gaming-geek” Steve Smolinski’s life. He’s about to save humanity from destruction at the hands of bloodthirsty elves ... which would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to do it from his cubicle at work. In a tour-de-force one-man show, GAM3RS captures the chaos that ensues when one’s virtual world and real life collide. Written and performed by USD/Globe grad, Brian Bielawski and co-directed by Walter G. Meyer, GAM3RS premiered to critical praise at the New York Fringe Festival.
