A CMT San Jose Favorite! We couldn’t be happier to welcome our favorite sisters back to the Montgomery Theater stage. With one of the most glorious scores written in the past two decades, Side Show tells the story of real-life Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins who, side-by-side, became famous stage performers in the 1930s. With a message of acceptance, that there is no-such-thing-as-“normal,” Side Show is an ideal title for our Mainstage performers. Notable for sweeping songs such as “Who Will Love Me As I Am?” “You Should Be Loved,” and “I Will Never Leave You,” this production offers a summer experience of wonder, delight, and togetherness (literally).

"Side Show" is a cult classic for CMT—every 7 years, CMT brings it back to the summer stage. This is the third CMT production of "Side Show", and it is sure to be just as haunting and touching as ever.
