Overview

Side Show tells the story of Daisy and Violet Hilton, a pair of Siamese twins who rose from carnivals to cult stardom in vaudeville and in Tod Browning's film, Freaks. The score to the show was composed by Henry Krieger, who is able to make the bizarre subject matter accessible with his music, which is alternately soaring, urgent, and chillingly evocative. Furthermore, the lyrics by Bill Russell are particularly direct and effective, making Side Show -- considering its subject matter -- a surprisingly effective musical.

I saw this on Broadway when it came out and we gave the cast their very first, WELL DESERVED standing ovation. I was heartbroken when its run ended prematurely-- this cast was magical and this music is still powerful enough to bring tears to my eyes. Any lover of music needs this CD.

Our HIGH SCHOOL just finished running this play. Let me tell the music is some of the greatest I have ever heard in my life. If you cant see the show at least listen to its magical music.

This musical is one of the best i have ever seen and heard. Just amazing. Alice and Emily are just amazing in the role of Daisy and Violet. I would reccomend this musical to anyone.
