Barnum arrives at the Hippodrome today, I recently went down to Southampton to see the show and interview the cast. It was a magnificent show full of spectacular circus choreography but it’s also a gripping story, the cast delved deeply into their characters and told the story sensationally.
It was a show that blew my mind and for something I didn’t have huge expectations for, I even caught a tear in my eye during the finale because I was so overwhelmed by how outstanding the show was.
After the show I went backstage to interview Brian Conley and Linzi Hateley, the two stars of the show. As I’d just seen the show I had so many questions to ask, they were so friendly and portrayed their enormous passion for the show through the answers to my questions.
Barnum is on at the Hippodrome until the 1st of August and tickets can be found here.
