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 ballet was enjoyable. Juliet was excellent. She appeared flawless. Romeo less so. I would have liked to see more dancing. Too much time was spent on the villagers hopping around the square. Also the choreography tried to incorporate too may modern elements into the performance. I like my ballet a little more traditional. Overall, with the Goldstar discount, it was well worth it.
