Inspired by P.T. Barnum’s vision, The Greatest Showman is a musical masterpiece that delivers both in song and dance. With the Academy Award winning lyricists of LA LA Land at the helm, this is one soundtrack that is definitely worth getting.
Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, a man with big dreams looking to make his fortune with his wife Charity, played by Michelle Williams at his side, is inspired by his daughters, (Austyn Johnson and Cameron Seely) to turn his museum filled with dead things into a place filled with living “oddities” that the world would pay money to see. Among the various people who join him in his plight are midget, Tom Thumb (Sam Humphrey), a bearded woman, Lettie Lutz (Keela Settle), and beautiful trapeze artist, Anne Wheeler (Zendaya) who’s only “oddity” aside from her remarkable skill is the color of her skin.
