The Best of The Greatest Showman
To celebrate one of our favourite musicals, we thought we’d take a look at what makes The Greatest Showman so special…
The All Star Cast
It goes without saying that The Greatest Showman has a star-studded cast of actors, singers and dancers. The hit film is brought to life by A list favourites such as Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zac Efron.
The film has also introduced the world to spectacular talents including the fabulous Keala Settle, previously known for stealing the show on Broadway.
A Heartwarming Story
The Greatest Showman is inspired by the fascinating life of P.T. Barnum, the American showman famous for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Starting from humble beginnings, Barnum’s businesslike character and entrepreneurial spirit were evident from an early age.
The story showcases Barnum’s unlikely rise to success and many of the twists and turns along the way. An inspiring tale about following your dreams, it’s no surprise that the feel-good film struck a chord with its audience.
Celebrating Our Differences
Arguably the film’s most powerful theme is diversity. The Greatest Showman celebrates what makes us different and shines a light on our most unique qualities.
Though Barnum’s circus performers are dismissed as “freaks” by high-society, the uplifting musical sees them power through adversity and come out on the other side. What better way to lift your spirits?!
The Ultimate Feel-Good Soundtrack
The Greatest Showman’s toe-tapping soundtrack saw singalong cinema events sweep the nation, while the soundtrack itself spent over 10 weeks at Number 1 on the Official Album Charts in the UK.
The jam-packed album is one that we’re sure will stand the test of time. From power ballad ‘This is Me’ to the lively sounds of ‘The Greatest Show’.
