If you are a fan of musicals and show business you will really enjoy this production. The music and lyrics are wonderful, as is Hugh Jackman as an actor and singer. The story tells of an impoverished young man with big dreams who marries his child-hood sweetheart. He initially launches into fulfilling his dreams with a popular wax museum of oddities. Following a drastic fire that destroys the venue, he soon transforms his dreams and imagination into live performances featuring the unique, extraordinary and peculiar acts by performers who help to bring the shows into great worldwide successes and make P.T. Barnum very wealthy.
