The currently running Kennedy Center production of Bill Russell and Henry Krieger's Side Show may make a move to Broadway this fall, according to The New York Times. Three anonymous executives have reported that producer Darren Bagert has been discussing a potential move with producing partners and may be able to raise funds quickly.

Side Show opened at the Kennedy Center on June 19 and will close on July 13. Academy Award winner Bill Condon directs, with choreography by Anthony Van Laast and musical direction by Sam Davis. Side Show, produced in association with La Jolla Playhouse, stars Erin Davie and Emily Padgett.

Side Show is based on the true story of conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton. The musical examines the ways in which the sisters' extraordinary bond brought them fame but denied them love.
