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

- “Lamb’s Players gets it right! Thanks to versatile performers, a crack band, Kerry Meads’ turn-on-a-dime staging, and the writers’ savvy concept. They whip it good!” --San Diego Union-Tribune (Critic's Choice)
- "If you’re not of the era, just sit back and enjoy the spectacle! What really matters is personality, and this company has it! -- San Diego Theatre Scene (Best Bet)
The musical miXtape takes audiences on a seriously wild musical ride back to that most awesome of decades, featuring the greatest hits of the '80s, including music by Genesis, Madonna, Sting, U2, Oingo Boingo, The Smiths, Duran Duran, Amy Grant, Huey Lewis and the News, Depeche Mode, the B-52s, the Pointer Sisters and Michael Jackson, among many others. Reagan was in the White House, lycra and legwarmers were the accessories du jour and a "mixtape" of favorite tunes was the ultimate in self-expression.
A lousy economy was about to bounce back like we’d never seen, set to the synthesized beat of '80s rock. The Cold War was heating up, and with fingers on the nuclear button, the world was sure to end any moment. But for Generation X, life was just beginning. Put on your suspenders, pull out the Members Only jacket, do your hair up with a scrunchy and "cut footloose" for this totally rad musical world premiere.
The show runs 2 hours and 25 minutes with one intermission.
