Academy Award-winning director Bill Condon (Chicago, Dreamgirls) heads up an exciting new re-imagining of the 1997 Tony-nominated musical Side Show, inspired by the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton. 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, this well-reviewed revival was developed by the acclaimed La Jolla Playhouse and features the songs "I Will Never Leave You," "Who Will Love Me As I Am?" and "Come Look at the Freaks," along with the addition of some new characters and tunes.

The shuttle bus leaves the Foggy Bottom Metro station every 15 minutes so it's easy to get to by Public Transport. If you drive you can park in the garage at the Kennedy Center but it is expensive or you can park on the streets which might be hard to find and have to walk. I suggest metro!travel • Jan 16 2014 star this tip starred

After reading the lukewarm reviews, I didn't know what to expext, but was pleasantly surprised. We really enjoyed this show. The singing was great across the board as was the music. The dancing, although technically good, appeared pretty dated, but this was supposed to be the 80's. The new songs were all catchy, which is unusual considering how many there were. The lead actress and actor did a very good job as did the supporting roles. It was a very fun afternoon.
