The Greatest Showman is a 2017 American musical film directed by Michael Gracey in his directorial debut, written by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon and starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya.

The film is inspired by the story of P. T. Barnum's creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.


Here's the trailer:

With the title and movie poster, I'd already surmised that this must be a movie about P.T. Barnum.

At least I was right about the P.T. Barnum aspect:

I didn't know it was a modern musical!

A musical in 2017?

The last musicals I remember seeing were "Rocky Horror", "Hair" and maybe something from "Rogers and Hammerstein"?

(Yeah, yeah, I know I'm ancient...)

Last shocker was watching Hugh Jackman singing and dancing!

(My warped mind couldn't resist picturing Wolverine doing all the P.T. Barnum scenes - LMFAO!)

About the Author

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life – while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.

In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.

After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.

Since then, he's been a full-time, single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).

He lives on an island paradise with his teenage daughter, longtime girlfriend and three dogs.
