From the makers: Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
To me this movie is about so much more!! It is abou being yourself and accepting yourself for who you are. A great lesson it “today’s world”, where everyone is under even more “pressure” to keep up with the Joneses thanks to the influence of social media.
