AceShowbiz - Ahead of the release of "The Greatest Showman", the cast of the film will be promoting the movie on various talk shows, including "The Late Late Show with James Corden". On Friday, December 8, Zac Efron, Hugh Jackman and Zendaya Coleman were spotted filming a circus musical for the show in Midtown Manhattan.
Zac had a small accident when he fell off a tricycle as Hugh and Zendaya were dancing with James Corden and a bunch of extras. Immersed in their roles, "The Wolverine" actor who dressed like a magician, Zendaya who wore a purple dress and the comedian who donned a wig and fake beard didn't break their choreography to help Zac though they witnessed the 30-year-old hunk's little misfortune.
Zac quickly got back on his feet, though, and continued riding the tricycle.

Judging from the pictures that are obtained by TMZ, the circus sketch will be a new installment of "Crosswalk the Musical" which previously featured Lin-Manuel Miranda, "Beauty and the Beast (2017)" cast, Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen among others.
"The Greatest Showman" is described as a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, the musical drama tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
Directed by Michael Gracey, it stars Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, Michelle Williams as Barnum's wife, Zac Efron as Barnum's business partner and Zendaya Coleman as a performer who falls in love with Efron's character. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul ("La La Land") wrote original songs for the film, which is due out in theaters across the nation on December 20.
