Barnum is to tour the UK. Based on the Chichester production but heavily reworked.

Brain Conley playing the title role is exactly the kind of man to take what is actually quite a boring book and bring the music and excitement of the piece to life. He has the charisma which you need for this title role.

Cameron and Michael Harrison will produce and if this outing is more successful it's expected the show will come into town for a run...

Its launching at the Curve I believe which isn't surprising as they have staged Chichester shows like 42nd Street. Clearly Cameron think it can be salvaged.

Cameron actually features on The Sound of Musicals on Tuesday so we'll get to see the creative process of Barnum, it looks like a corker.
