Theater

Side Show

La Jolla, CA / Washington D.C. / New York, NY

Side Show is a musical about Siamese twins Daisy and Violet. To tell the story of their journey from a ramshackle traveling show to stardom on an international stage, Rockwell Group’s sets frame the sisters’ life as a memory in which their earliest roots can’t be forgotten

As the girls prepare to leave the traveling show, the set moves into darkness upstage.

Throughout the first act, elements like platforms, staircases, banners, and a small proscenium stage can be reconfigured by actors and by computer-controlled automation.

As the second act begins, a small gilded proscenium slowly expands into the large proscenium of the Palace Theatre in New York.

The twins find the vaudeville stage is not so different from the side show.
