The Musical story of the world's Greatest Showman - P.T.Barnum.
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
“Barnum’s the name –P.T. Barnum. I want to tell you that tonight you are going to see – bar none – every sight, wonder and miracle that name stands for!”
Tracing the career of America’s greatest showman from 1835 to the year he joined James A Bailey to form the greatest show on earth, Barnum tells the story of Phineas Taylor Barnum, defender of ‘the noble art of humbug’.
Driven by a philosophy and an ambition to make a fortune, he creates the Museum of Curiosities, full of weird and wonderful side shows. P. T. Barnum, the Greatest Showman on Earth, combines razzle-dazzle with charm to sell his humbug to cheering crowds – introducing to the adoring masses, Joice Heth, the world’s oldest woman, General Tom Thumb, the smallest man in the world and the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind.
A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’ greatest show-biz legend, Barnum is a colourful and dynamic spectacle full of heart and passion.
Cy Coleman’s and Michael Stewart’s rousing score includes, ‘There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute’, ‘Join the Circus’, Bigger isn’t Better’, ‘Colours of My Life’ and ‘Come Follow the Band’.
