Production Description

Casting "Barnum," the Cy Coleman musical about the Prince of Humbug, Phineas Taylor Barnum. Over the objections of his wife, Charity, Barnum attempts to create a show in which the main attractions are freaks of society. Included in this mix of characters are the oldest woman alive, Joyce Heth; the smallest man in the world, Tom Thumb; and to top it all off, a glamorous Swedish opera singer, Jenny Lind. Eventually, to appease Charity, Barnum agrees to give up the show and start a normal life. In the end, after Charity dies, Barnum returns to the circus business in grand fashion by forming a partnership with James A. Bailey. Thus, the two men form "The Greatest Show on Earth."
