Westchester Broadway Theatre's production of the brassy Cy Coleman/Michael Stewart musical Barnum opens on May 11th; the show began previews on May 4th and runs through July 8th.

Based on the life of the flamboyant circus impresario P.T. Barnum, the show features music by Coleman, lyrics by Stewart and a book by Mark Bramble. Barnum "blends circus arts with Broadway skill. A lot of the credit goes to director/choreography Joe Layton for his imaginative staging of the original Broadway production. His choreography fills the stage with color-- every where you look there are clowns, jugglers, acrobats, tumblers, baton twirlers, tightrope walkers, and trapeze artists," state Westchester notes.

The production stars Tony Lawson as P.T. Barnum, Ann Van Cleave as Chairy Barnum, Alison Spratt as Jenny Lind, Terri White (who was in the original Broadway production) as Joyce Heth and Courter Simmons as Tom Thumb. The production is choreographed and directed by Ray Roderick.
