  • This musical looks at the relationship between sideshow stars Daisy and Violet Hilton. The life of the conjoined British twins, who became stars in the U.S., is exposed, as the girls endured abusive relatives and managers who controlled them for many decades. They became a tap dancing/musical duo and when they were in their 20s were eventually emancipated from those who were controlling them. Side Show offers audiences insights into the lives, loves, losses, and triumphs of two sisters who shared every moment of their lives together.
