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

I saw the play last night and although it was entertaining, I found it choppy and it did not flow that well. I think some of the characters were also overdone and cliche. The ending was a little disturbing and extreme especially since the young black man was threatened with physical abuse not maiming. The two main characters played their roles as best they could with a so so script. Overall at full price would not recommend this play.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A wonderfully affecting and amusing work that reveals a master playwright fully in command of his powers!" --Hollywood Reporter
Hot off the Broadway stage, this is a hilarious and soulful new comedy from Tracy Letts, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning author of August: Osage County.
Pony-tailed, ex-60’s radical Arthur Przybyszewski is the owner of a struggling, run-down donut shop in uptown Chicago. His shop gets vandalized. Arthur is worn out. Is Superior Donuts destined to close its doors forever?
Enter live wire Franco Wicks, a young black man with his Great American novel tucked under his arm. Franco convinces Arthur to hire him with the dream of transforming the donut stop into an upscale coffee shop with live music and poetry slams.
The growing bond between them is the heart of a tale about two very different men with extraordinary potential who discover the healing power of friendship. Their story is full of surprising secrets, big laughs and even bigger emotional stakes.
