News From Around the Block

I have two interesting stories to bring you today. has posted the first sound bite from the upcoming revival of Side Show.  The production stars Erin Davie and Emily Padgett as conjoined twins in a side show.  The clip is of the two singing "Who Will Love Me As I Am?" -- a song from the show, with music by Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger and lyrics by Bill Russell.  The revival, which begins previews in late October in anticipation of a November 17th opening, will be directed by Academy Award winning screenwriter Bill Condon (Chicago, Gods & Monsters) in his Broadway debut.

In other musical revival news, Josh Kaufman, winner of season 6 of Television's The Voice, will be joining the cast of Broadway's Pippin.  Mr. Kaufman will be performing in the show's titular role in a limited engagement from November 4th, 2014, through January 4th, 2015.
