REVIEW: Side Show, St James Theatre ✭✭✭✭✭

Side Show review Broadway

On any rational view of it, this is not a revival but a complete re-imagining of the original work. It is not an attempt to recapture the magic of a first run or to cash in on an established success. It is a completely new creation, in terms of content, style and tone, and unlike its predecessor, it’s purpose is clear, focussed and spectacularly realised.
