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

Saw "The Grand Duke" last night, performed by the Lyric Theatre (Gilbert & Sullivan Society). This rarely-performed Gilbert & Sullivan opera is filled with great tunes, often hysterically funny dialogue, and a plot as twisted (in a good way) of any grand opera.
I laughed a lot, and Lyric Theatre presented some of the funniest performers you are likely to see on a stage in a while, who wholeheartedly threw themselves into the absurdity of the characters and made them their own.
I heartily recommend this show. Only one weekend left!
