The Greatest Showman
I am a huge musical theater nerd so I was overly excited when I heard that Hugh Jackman was staring in a new movie musical about P T Barnum. I have always been in love with the freak show. One of my favorite musicals is Sideshow. So I was in love with the idea of a movie musical showing us love for people who are different then normal. I have always loved what makes people unique.
The film is fantastic. I fell in love with it as soon as the music started. Almost every song is memorable and I have had the songs stuck in my head since walking out of the theater. I am sad that I didn’t go to the theatre sooner to see the show. It’s such a mesmorizing show. All the songs are memorable and they all brought me so much joy.
I sat in the theater almost crying so many times. I really loved the way they told the story. Each song felt like they were telling the story of these characters. The only thing I would have really enjoyed was if they had spent more time telling the story of all of the circus acts within Barnum’s circus. They all probably had pretty interesting lives and stories to tell.
If you haven’t made it out to see the show I would definitely get out to the theater to see the film before it leaves the theater. I already got the soundtrack and I haven’t stopped listening to it. I can’t wait to purchase the film when it comes out on Bluray.
