Book by Mark Bramble
Music by Cy Coleman
Lyrics by Michael Stewart

P.T. Barnum, the Greatest Showman on Earth, combines razzle-dazzle with charm and brass to sell “humbug” to cheering crowds. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the 19th century’s greatest show-biz legend, Barnum is a colorful, dynamic spectacle with heart. Cy Coleman and Michael Stewart’s rousing score includes “There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute,” “Join the Circus,” “The Colors of My Life,” and “Come Follow The Band.”

Recommended for ages 10+

“Barnum is a wonderful musical, full of excitement, joy, and smashing tunes.” –Live Theatre UK
