Alice & Emily's Belting B'day! Side Show Opened on Broadway 20 Years Ago
The cult musical Side Show opened on October 16, 1997 at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre, and while it only ran 91 performance, the bio-musical about conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton scored four Tony nominations including Best Musical, Best Score, and a joint nom for its breakout stars Alice Ripley and Emily Skinner. Celebrate 20 years of Side Show with these clips from the OBC.

Ok, this is just an audio track but there's no celebration of Side Show without that belt off that culminates with Alice's Violet screlting "where is mine/I want mine" at 4:50. 🙌
