Step right up to hear Maryland Morning culture editor Tom Hall and theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck discuss The Kennedy Center's production of "Side Show." 

The musical centers around the Hilton Sisters, conjoined twins who performed on the vaudeville circuit.  After a [failed] run on Broadway in 1997, this is the first major revival of “Side Show.” It's up at the Kennedy Center until July 13.
