Recommendation: The Greatest Showman

the_greatest_showman_posterI need recommendations! So my boyfriend and I went to see The Greatest Showman on Tuesday last week. We loved it. There were a few things that I would have differently but overall it was great. I honestly forgot what an amazing singer Hugh Jackman is. Zendaya needs some help getting rid of the breathy sound from her voice (sorry music teacher issues).

THE GREATEST SHOWMANOne of the biggest questions we had walking out was how much of it was truth. We know it was a fictionalization of the history of P.T. Barnum and the history of his circus. Then my boyfriend who doesn’t like to read very much said the magic words, “Now I want to read a book about him to find out how much of this is true and to learn more about the real story.”

So now I am coming to my blog readers. I could research this but without reading them all myself, I am not going to be as good a resource as you. Has anyone read a biography about P.T. Barnum or a nonfiction book about the history of the circus that they would recommend?

If you haven’t seen this one, go check it out!
