New Article: Hugh Jackman Puts On A Show In New Big-Screen Musical!

Hello everybody,

Hugh Jackman’s new musical has been a long time in the making. The film, helmed by Australian director Michael Gracey, tells the story of legendary circus showman P.T. Barnum’s rise from poverty-stricken childhood to the launch of his first circus in New York in the mid-1800s. It’s been in development for seven years and will finally hit Australian cinema screens this month.

"“Up until La La Land, everyone was saying there hasn’t been an original musical in 23 years,” Jackman said. “So the prevailing thought in Hollywood was, unless you have a brand people know, it’s not a done thing. So it just took a long time.”

Actor Zac Efron plays Barnum’s business partner, who falls in love with a trapeze artist, played by Zendaya. Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson round out the cast.

Jackman said he credits Barnum with contributing “to the invention of show business.” “This was also a time in America where puritans kind of ruled and the circus was the equivalent of some dark-alley-strip-show kind of thing,” he said."
