THE GREATEST SHOWMAN: Rated PG – 1 hr.45 mins.

Director:  Michael Gracy

Starring:  Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Austyn Johnson and Cameron Seely

As we flow into the melodic world of the imagination…we meet Mr. P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman), raising himself up from poverty to a man of vision and fortitude…

When he meets the beautiful and engaging Charity (Michelle Williams), he promises his new bride the world on a string ~ and as their meager life unfolds before them ~ PT forges forth with a way to keep that promise, while providing a prosperous life for his beautiful wife and girls…

Trying to build his show business empire ~one freak at a time~ Barnum secures the services of man-about-town, Phillip Carlyle (Zac Efron) to help him build his empire…

As THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH begins to take hold, only Barnum, and his high aspirations for other endeavors ~like managing the beautiful English singing sensation Jenny Lind (Rebecca Ferguson) ~ can get in the way of making his life-long dream ~ the CIRCUS ~ as BIG as it was always destined to be…

I give THE GREATEST SHOWMAN a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN! The fabulous movies at the end of 2017 just keep coming, with this the most magical and moving musical I have seen in quite some time.  Jackman is stupendous playing the man, the showman, P.T. Barnum.  Efron is perfection too, playing Barnum’s partner and side kick Phillip Carlyle.  Williams and Zendaya are perfectly cast as well in their respective roles as well…playing the unwavering and committed spouse, and the beautiful trapeze artist that catches Carlyle’s eye, respectively, making THE GREATEST SHOWMAN a star-studded spectacle that is truly top-notch entertainment.  So, if you are even remotely fond of musicals, or if just want to appease your significant other and see one, get ready to enjoy the enchanting spectacle that is THE GREATEST SHOWMAN at a theater near you, because you have catch this one on the BIG SCREEN~ and no other way ~ so that you can experience all of its magic, all its grandeur as it was meant to be…
