Based on the real-life Hilton twins, Side Show follows two conjoined sisters on their search for love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame. The work premiered on Broadway in 1997 starring Emily Skinner and Alice Ripley, and a revised edition returned to the Main Stem in 2014 starring Erin Davie and Emily Padgett. White Plains Performing Arts Center's production will present the original 1997 version of the work.
Frank Portanova will direct the production, with music direction by Stephen Ferri, choreography by Antoinette DiPietropolo, scenic design by Chistopher and Justin Swader, lighting design by Daisy Long, and sound design by Jon Weston. Suzi Bonnot is stage manager.
“Twenty-five years later, Side Show resonates today more than ever,” says Portanova in a statement. "The show is a call for authentic universal empathy in order to advance our understanding of the human experience. We will only make meaningful change and progress once we remediate marginalization in all its forms in our society. In order to do that, Side Show asks us to find and see the other in each other.”
