Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, ‘The Greatest Showman’ is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation—the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Jackman plays the showman with a penchant for hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring circus that made him famous. The musical also focuses on his infatuation with singer Jenny Lind—the so-called Swedish Nightingale.
This has been a dream project for Hugh Jackman since 2009. This is his first musical since ‘Les Misérables.’”
