The Greatest Showman
When 19th century aspiring entrepreneur P.T. Barnum loses his job after the company’s bankruptcy, he decides to finally try to fulfil his dreams and a promise he gave to his family by reinventing himself as ‘The Greatest Showman’. This involves putting together a circus the likes of which had never been seen before. Populating such a bold project requires a diverse, eclectic list of astounding performers unafraid to stand-out, and who refuse to be like everybody else. The results lay the foundations for what we now think of as show business. Based on a true story, this is a lavish and original musical full of spectacle and infectious enthusiasm for being true to yourself and embracing who you are.
Brief mild threat, violence.
