CAMERON MACKINTOSH AND CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE'S
RECORD-BREAKING PRODUCTION
 
'Barnum's the name, P T Barnum, and I want to tell you that tonight, on this stage, you are going to see - bar none - every sight, wonder and miracle that name stands for!'
 
This exhilarating musical follows the irrepressible imagination and dreams of Phineas T Barnum, America's Greatest Showman. The story of his life and his marriage to Chairy reveals a couple who looked at the world from opposite sides of the spectrum, and also reveals that she was the practical one who made his dreams come true.  
 
We follow the legendary showman's life as he lit up the world with colour, warmth and the excitement of his imagination and finally teamed up with J A Bailey to create Barnum and Bailey's Circus - the Greatest Show on Earth.
 
Barnum is a ‘BIG, SHARP, WITTY, BREATHTAKING, AND EMOTIONAL’ (The Observer) show starring Brian Conley (Oliver!, Hairspray, Jolson) in the title role and featuring Linzi Hateley as ‘Chairy’ (Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!, Chicago, Les Misérables).

Cy Coleman's wonderfully exuberant score includes the hits Come Follow The Band, The Colours Of My Life and There Is A Sucker Born Ev'ry Minute.
