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

At the end of the performance, I felt like I had an enjoyable night at the theater. Shakespeare is really tough for any actor and most of the actors handled it very capably. My only real complaint would be the actors portraying the slaves Dromio. It was just very painfully obvious that they were trying too hard to be funny in this role. Everything about their acting choices felt very forced and unnatural. While the audience laughed and enjoyed it, it was just very annoying for myself to watch. Actually, some of the comedy in this production felt very forced. But like I said, at the end of the performance, I actually enjoyed it for what it was and felt that a lot of performances were very well don.
The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's earliest and shortest plays, is the classic tale of two sets of twins accidentally separated at birth by a shipwreck. In this farcical comedy, their lives come crashing back together through a series of wild mishaps, mistaken identity, accusations, madness and confusion.
Shakespeare's play has been adapted for opera, stage, screen, and musical theatre.
