Barnum

 

Thursday 9th – Saturday 11th May 2019

Evenings 7.30 Saturday Matinee 2.00

“Barnum’s the name… P.T. Barnum. And I want to tell you that tonight you are going to see – bar none – every sight, wonder and miracle that name stands for!”


Tracing the career of America’s greatest showman from 1835 to the year he joined James A. Bailey to form The Greatest Show On Earth, Barnum tells the story of Phineas Taylor Barnum, defender of "the noble art of humbug". Driven by a philosophy and an ambition to make a fortune, he creates the Museum of Curiosities, full of weird and wonderful side shows. P.T. Barnum, the Greatest Showman on Earth, combines razzle-dazzle with charm to sell his humbug to cheering crowds; introducing Joyce Heth, the world’s oldest woman, General Tom Thumb, the smallest man in the world and the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind to the adoring masses. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’s greatest show-biz legend, BARNUM is a colourful, dynamic spectacle full of heart and passion. Cy Coleman and Michael Stewart’s rousing score includes “There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute,” “Join the Circus,” “Bigger Isn’t Better and “Come Follow The Band.”

Tickets: £17 available from the Majestic Theatre Box Office
