Freak Shows are Coming to Broadway

If you’ve become engrossed in this season’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, then you’ll be happy to know that a couple of freak shows are coming to Broadway in New York City.

The first show, Side Show, will begin on October 28, 2014 at the St. James Theatre (246 W. 44th Street).  As you look at the photo, you’ll see it is very reminiscent of AHS:FS.  The show is based on a true story about two sisters joined at the hip and their quest for first love.

If you take a walk through Schubert Alley just a few steps away from St. James, you’ll find another theatre decked out in the old time carnival style.  Here, they are housing the Elephant Man starring Bradley Cooper (Silver Lining Playbook, The Hangover I, II, and III) and Patricia Clarkson (The Maze Runner, Simply Irresistible).

What is interesting about the Booth Theatre is that they are all decked out and ready for the Elephant Man to hit Broadway on November 7, 2014.  In the last 10 years of walking by this theatre every single day, not once have they ever been so incredibly decked out as they are now.

Even the flyers they mailed out to subscribers were fantastic.  Here’s a glimpse at what they sent out to everyone:

How beautifully done is that placard?  I hope that their posters look like this because it’s definitely one that will look amazing up on the wall.

So if you’re in New York City later on this month (and next month), get a peek at these amazing and fantastic creatures as two freak shows grace Broadway.

Fall 2014 is definitely the year of the Freak Show.
