The Latest Hollywood Musical: The Greatest Showman

In India, we have always seen our actors and actresses, break into song and dance. It is part and parcel of Indian Cinema to have songs and music at regular intervals in our films. However, In Hollywood movies, there is a separate genre of movie that use songs and dance in their stories. Such movies are called Musicals. Some of the most famous musicals in recent history are Moulin Rouge, Chicago, Hairspray, Dream girls etc. Though we have had many more musicals, these stand out because they were both critically and widely acclaimed. You can always watch them with bookings at the Ticketnew site.

Going by the above list we can safely hazard a guess that with an engaging story, good music with song and dance makes for a sure hit. Where Moulin Rouge tells the story of a playwright who falls in love with the star of the show. In Chicago we have 2 murderesses who vie for the same attorney to represent their case. With Hairspray, we get to see a musical that rallies against segregation based on race, and appearance. In Dream girls we follow the rise and fall of an African American girl band that becomes a victim to jealousy and manipulation.

The above list of Musicals all tell diverse stories, but were all widely accepted by audiences everywhere. In the past 5 years we have just as diverse a list of musicals as well. They include Les Miserables, La la land, Beauty and the Beast and the upcoming movie The Greatest Showman.

Les Miserables is an adaptation of the French literary work by the same name. It tells the story of how an ex-convict struggles to keep away from a life of crime and save others like him. La la land is story of 2 struggling artists in LA- The land of Dreams. Beauty and The Beast is a well known children’s fairy tale of a beautiful peasant girl who charms the cursed beast in his castle and releases his curse.

The latest musical in the list is very much different from all its predecessors. The Greatest Showman gives a biographical account of the life and rise of Phineus Taylor Barnum. He was famous for popularizing the touring circus and different freak shows that attracted huge crowds and entertained many. It talks about the rise of the showman who sold dreams to struggling folk.
