Time Out says
A colourful musical celebrating the eccentric life of American showman Phineas T Barnum. Starring Brian Conley
One of the world’s great showmen, PT Barnum has the ultimate accolade of a musical in his honour, and this one has, literally, all the fun of the fair. It follows his rise, fall and rise again, and the larger than life man gets the larger than life treatment in a show that comes complete with its very own circus.
It takes a big personality to do Barnum justice and this musical has one in the shape of Brian Conley, a man who shouldn’t have any difficulty in convincing you that he’s America’s Greatest Showman. But can he walk a tightrope live on stage?
