The Hiltons in Salt Lake City

One of the most fascinating parts of researching a historically based show is when you find a tidbit that connects you to the real people behind the story.  In our case, its with Daisy and Violet Hilton, the famous conjoined twins around which the story of Side Show revolves.  In going through photos of their life, we found this particular caption:

The sisters in the cafeteria of the Newhouse Hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah. They were scheduled to perform at the RKO theater.

Apparently, a Utah audience was able to enjoy the singing and dancing of these famous twins.  Which makes me wonder, do we have anyone who had the chance to see them live?  If so, we would love to hear your story.
