A leaping, spinning and singing Michael Crawford stars as the world's greatest showman, Phineas T. Barnum, in Harold Fielding's rousing Victoria Palace production of the smash circus musical BARNUM. Hailed as “the definitive Barnum,” Crawford delivers beautiful songs and show-stopping circus moments, one after another. The story traces P.T. Barnum's career from his humble beginnings as a sideshow promoter right through to co-founding “The Greatest Show on Earth,” the Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Good made-for-TV broadcast version of the 1986 London production. Michael Crawford is great as always playing Barnum. Eileen Batye, with her Eve Arden/Our Miss Brooks voice as his wife is excellent but those of us who did not see the American production can not help longing for footage of Glenn Close in the Original Broadway cast.
