Wait, MUSICAL Monday?! Yep, for this week's Music Monday I've switched things up a lil! Stick with me here...
Over the weekend, I went to my local Independent Cinema (which btw we should always support and keep visiting!) with my lovely parents.
We went to see The Greatest Showman, which since I first heard about, was desperate to see. I mean, Zac Efron singing in a movie musical again, hello.
Within the first few minutes Mum and I were welling up. Not because we are emotional wrecks but the fact that from the beginning, the music is so uplifting and poignant, for want of better phrases.
Hugh Jackman is incredible as P.T Barnum and the whole cast just stole the show! Those who know me know me will not be surprised of my love of a musical, but this one really is up there with one of the best movie musicals I've seen. For those who haven't heard the soundtrack, I dare you to go see the film and not come out wanting the listen to the soundtrack over and over again! I certainly am and I'm not even ashamed
If you're not into musicals, it isn't packed full of songs from beginning to end so it's bearable for those musical fiends I would say. We all know one, amiright?!
So go, go, go to watch it and escape the norm for two hours! You're welcome...
