About This Show

If ever there were a bigger-than-life American figure whose biography seemed custom-written for the Broadway musical stage, it was the legendary showman Phineas T. Barnum. Here is the show that traces the career of America’s greatest showman from 1835 to the year he joined James A. Bailey to form The Greatest Show on Earth. See why “The Greatest Show on Earth” is welcome with open arms all over the world.

The show’s buoyant score by Tony Award winner Cy Coleman includes romantic drama (“The Colors of My Life,” “I Like Your Style”), shameless hucksterism (“Museum Song”), and infectious crowd-pleasers (“Come Follow the Band” and “Join the Circus”). Barnum is certain to entertain and delight people of all ages.
