The Tony-nominated musical Side Show, inspired by the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, stars talented performers ages 14 to 20 from Children's Musical Theater (CMT) San Jose. The show follows the two sisters -- who're literally joined at the hip -- on their meteoric rise to fame during the 1930s and beyond, tracing their personal and professional lives from circus sideshow freaks to vaudeville headliners, as well as their lifelong search for independence and love. From Henry Krieger, the composer of Dreamgirls, with book and lyrics by Bill Russell, Side Show features the songs "I Will Never Leave You," "Who Will Love Me As I Am?" and "Come Look at the Freaks." Side Show is a cult-classic at CMT San Jose -- returning every seven years, it's now enjoying its third production there. Learn More

I especially loved how they used recognizable show tunes and sang their own relevant lyrics. ...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Bring the waterproof mascara because you’ll laugh so hard, you’ll cry. With humor and compassion, writer, producer, and lyricist Jeanie Linders has captured the experiences of every woman in her 40s and 50s.” —chicagocritic.com
“Linders’ humorous new lyrics coupled to old favorites provide a good laugh. When the show ended, the entire audience was still clapping their hands to the final number, yelling and letting out whoops of approval.” —Daily Californian
“‘My Guy’ becomes ‘My Thighs,’ ‘I’m Sorry’ transforms into ‘I’m Flashing,’ ‘The Great Pretender’ laments brain collapse, and ‘A Sign of the Times’ is ‘looking in the mirror and seeing my mother.’ Get the picture? It’s hilarious, good fun and the perfect destination for a girls’ treat out. (Judging from their guffaws, the handful of guys in the audience were enjoying it, too.)” —Baltimore Times-Herald
