“I Will Never Leave You” – Side Show

Music: Henry Krieger   Lyrics: Bill Russell

Sisters Daisy and Violet Hilton are the subject of this musical based on their remarkable lives.  The conjoined twins became celebrated performers in the 1930’s.  In a tender moment between them, they comfort each other after Violet confesses her fear of being alone during this heartrending number.  Their story is also told in a documentary film entitled Bound By Flesh released on this day in 2012.
