The Greatest Showman (Michael Gracey, 2017)

The Fantasy/Animation podcast takes listeners on a journey through the intersection between fantasy cinema and the medium of animation.

For episode 6, Chris and Alex are joined by Dr Martha Shearer (King’s College London), expert on the Hollywood musical and author of the recent monograph New York City and the Hollywood Musical: Dancing in the Streets (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016). Together, they discuss The Greatest Showman (Michael Gracey, 2017) in relation to its status as a biopic, as a fantasy of New York, and its marked use of computer graphics that bring this all-singing, all-dancing American musical to life.
