“I’m putting together a show, it’s a place where people can see what they’ve never seen before.” Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, ‘The Greatest Showman’ is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
“I think I’ve got an idea. P. T. Barnum at your service. I’m putting together a show and I need a star.” Hugh Jackman stars as Barnum — the man behind the game-changing Barnum & Bailey Circus.
“No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.” The trailer begins with Jackman being fired from his job. He promises his family a better life, and begins to assemble his circus crew. “Don’t listen to them, they don’t understand yet, but, they will.” Directed By Michael Gracey from a screenplay by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon, the musical from 20th Century Fox also stars Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson, Diahann Carroll and Zendaya.
“Everyone’s got an act. Everyone of us is special. And nobody is like anyone else. That’s the point of my show.” ‘The Greatest Showman’ includes original music from “La La Land” and “Dear Evan Hanson” duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The film hits theaters Christmas 2017.
