'Moulin Rouge! The Musical' releases new block of Broadway tickets
Derek Klena and Ashley Loren star.
Based on the Baz Luhrmann film of the same name, Moulin Rouge! The Musical follows the forbidden romance between the songwriter Christian and the courtesan Satine, who has already been promised to a rich Duke to keep the Moulin Rouge nightclub from financial ruin. The show features dozens of modern pop hits in addition to those from the original movie, like "Your Song" and "Roxanne."
The five-star New York Theatre guide review of Moulin Rouge! The Musical praised its "sublime artistry": "Moulin Rouge! The Musical is in a league of originality and creativity all of its own; with a song stack of some 70 pop hits from the 40s to the present day, it is the ultimate jukebox show... In a crowded Broadway market place, Moulin Rouge is a show that has it all."
Moulin Rouge! The Musical premiered on Broadway in 2019 and won 10 2020 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Choreography, Best Direction, and Best Leading Actor in a Musical for Aaron Tveit as Christian. Now, Tony nominee Derek Klena has stepped into the role opposite Ashley Loren as Satine.
