The 7 PM and 9:30 PM concerts on March 9 will feature Tony nominee Ripley, who co-starred as Violet, with original leading men Lewis, McCarthy and Panaro, as well as original Side Show standby Lauren Kennedy. The Skivvies will also perform.
Side Show debuted on Broadway Sept. 19, 1997, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Though its Broadway run was brief, at only 91 performances, Side Show has garnered a legion of fans. Robert Longbottom directed the original production that starred Tony nominee Emily Skinner and Tony Award winner Ripley as Daisy and Violet Hilton, respectively. The actresses shared a Tony Award nomination for their work. A re-imagined version of the musical, directed by Bill Condon, will arrive at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. this summer.
