P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman) is brought to life in an original musical which blurs the lines of historical fact and fantastical fiction mythologizing Barnumís life much as the great showman himself would spin stories in his museums, circus and other amusements. Barnum rises from rags to riches when he transforms his museum into a wildly successful show bringing together extraordinary and unique live acts on a circus stage. Yearning for the approval of high society, Barnum gambles it all on a lavish tour for opera singer Jenny Lind; neglecting both his family and the New York show. In the end he is reminded of the most important thing in his life-- family. Zach Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya co-star in this inspiring and delightful celebration of the birth of show biz. 2017.
