SIDE SHOW

Los Angeles Premiere

"A Thundering Success." - Los Angeles Times, Critic's Choice

"Powerful musical theatre flawlessly directed by Nick DeGruccio" - LA Drama Critics Circle

"It's a carnival of phantasmagoric delights...Director Nick DeGruccio superbly conveys the play's unsettling yet potent themes; he is equally adept at staging the lighthearted moments and spirited musical sequences...a seamlessly triumphant accomplishment" - BackStage West, Critic's Choice

"Excellent work...director Nick DeGruccio and music director Tom Griffin lead one of the hardest-working and vocally gifted ensembles on any stage in recent memory and the performances they coax out of Misty Cotton and Julie Dixon Jackson are, quite simply, amazing." LA Daily News, 3 1/2 Stars

"Under Nick DeGruccio's striking direction, the presentation is sleek...magnificent execution, making Side Show a must-see" - In Magazine

"a very solid, highly diverting evening from start to finish, a capable smaller-scale rendering of a big musical that's better than its failure to take off on Broadway would indicate." - Variety
