Louise Dearman & Laura Pitt-Pulford to star in London premiere of Side Show

The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye has revealed that Louise Dearman and Laura Pitt-Pulford will star in the London premiere of Side Show at the Southwark Playhouse later this year.

Directed by Hannah Chissick and produced by Paul Taylor-MillsSide Show will open on 26th October (previews from 21st October) and run until 3rd December 2016.

With music by Henry Krieger and lyrics by Bill Russell, Side Show is inspired by the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton. It's described as "a remarkable musical about love, acceptance and embracing the unique". 

Emily Skinner and Alice Ripley starred in the original 1997 Broadway production whilst Emily Padgett and Erin Davie led the 2014 Broadway revival.

Louise Dearman is about to return to the UK tour of Guys and Dolls as Miss Adelaide, having previously understudied both Miss Adelaide and Sarah Brown in the show's 2006 West End production before taking over as Sarah Brown for the 2007 UK tour. No stranger to playing two roles in the same show, Dearman is the only actress in the world to have played both Elphaba and Glinda in Wicked. 

Her theatre credits also include: The Songbook of Judy Garland (UK tour), Of Thee I Sing (Royal Festival Hall), Lois Lane/Bianca in Kiss Me, Kate (Royal Albert Hall), Water Babies (Leicester Curve), Tell Me On A Sunday (RCCL International), Eva Peron in Evita (UK tour), Lucy in Jekyll and Hyde (UK Tour), Jan in Grease (Victoria Palace/UK tour), Kiss Me, Kate (Victoria Palace), Whistle Down The Wind (Churchill), Narrator in Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (UK tour) and Grizabella in Cats (Cyprus).
