Meet the Man behind the curtain - Playwright Bill Russell as he talks about the history of Side Show, his inspirations, how he has made a professional career in the theatre, and other works including Pageant and elegies for angels, punks and raging queens, Unexpected Joy and Lucky Duck. A question and answer “conversation” will follow Bill’s talk. Russell received a 1998 Tony nomination for Side Show for Best Book and shared a nomination with composer Henry Krieger for Best Score. The show was nominated as Best Musical. Side Show takes audiences back to the 1930’s, following the legendary Hilton twins, Daisy and Violet, on their heartwarming search for love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame. This is the updated book and score from the 2014 Broadway revival.
