After a successful run at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts through mid-July, the revival of 1997 Side Show will come to Broadway in the autumn, according to The New York Times. Previews will begin October 28, and opening night is November 17 at the St. James Theater.

The musical is rather more sinister than recent Broadway hits like Aladdin or Beautiful: The Carole King Musical because it follows the real-life story of conjoined twins, Daisy and Violet Hilton.

The musical's score is by Henry Krieger, while  lyrics and book are by Bill Russell. The production in Washington featured sets by David Rockwell; lighting by Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer; sound by Kai Harada; costumes by Paul Tazewell; and choreography by Anthony Van Laast.
