The lyrics will be on screen so there is NO excuse for not singing along!

In a year with no Baz Luhrmann movie, The Greatest Showman fills the gap with a gigantic, brassy, unashamedly over-the-(big)-top circus musical with one eye on the multiplex and the other on the pop charts. As befits an origin story for legendary American impresario, entrepreneur and snake oil salesman P.T. Barnum and his troupe of talented oddballs and outsiders, it’s low on subtlety, high on spectacle and crams its poppy, hummable tunes so far down your ear holes, you’ll need a Q-tip to fish them out.
