Sing-Along The Greatest Showman (2017)
1h 46m / PG / Musical Drama
Hugh Jackman plays P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman, the 2017 musical celebration of the life of one of America’s true original entertainment pioneers, the producer of the most famous touring circus in history, and the spiritual godfather of marketing.
A worshipful celebration of the joy and equalizing power of show business (and featuring songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who composed for that other big love letter to showbiz, La La Land), The Greatest Showman presents a slightly sanitized-for-public-consumption version of Barnum’s history – but who cares? It’s pure delight, song and dance and romance all the way through, and its message that everyone deserves to be celebrated just as they are is definitely worth singing to the rafters about. Just like Barnum would have wanted, audiences are transported into a fantasy of spectacle and music for 90+ minutes, and hopefully leave with a fuller appreciation for the magic in their own lives.
Showman-inspired costumes are welcome when you come “follow the bouncing top hat” and add your voice to the flying circus of fantastic songs onscreen at the most requested, most successful sing-along in Tampa Theatre history!
