Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway Information

Escape into the romantic, glamorous world of Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway, based on the beloved 2001 movie by Baz Luhrmann. Get Moulin Rouge! The Musical tickets today.

Before Moulin Rouge! on Broadway came to be, the love story of a writer and a showgirl captivated fans on screen. The Moulin Rouge! movie grossed over $179 million worldwide and earned Catherine Martin two Oscars (for Best Costume Design and Best Production Design) at the 74th Academy Awards, where it received a further six nominations, including Best Picture. The movie musical starred Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, and Jim Broadbent, along with John Leguizamo and Richard Roxburgh.

The original Moulin Rouge! The Musical Broadway company was led by Tony Award winner Aaron Tveit as Christian and Tony nominee Karen Olivo as Satine. Danny Burstein took home his first Tony Award, after six previous nominations, for playing the Moulin Rouge's emcee, Harold Zidler. They all originated their roles at the pre-Broadway world premiere engagement of Moulin Rouge! The Musical at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre in 2018.

What is Moulin Rouge on Broadway about?

Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway is a love story about Christian, an American writer looking for inspiration in Paris, and Satine, a star showgirl and courtesan, within the Moulin Rouge nightclub at the turn of the 20th century. As Satine has been promised to the wealthy Duke, who promises to save her and the club from bankruptcy, her and Christian's romance blossoms in secret behind the scenes — but is love enough?

Is Moulin Rouge a jukebox musical?

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a jukebox musical. Like the movie, which featured versions of existing pop songs like "Lady Marmalade," "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," "Roxanne," and "Your Song," Moulin Rouge! on Broadway also has a pop score. The show brings "some of the most beloved popular music of the last 50 years to the stage," including all the aforementioned fan-favorite songs from the movie. There are also dozens more chart-toppers from Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and many more, plus the movie's one original song, "Come What May."

Our review

Danny Burtsein in Moulin Rouge! The Musical

In 2002 Baz Luhrmann, the idiosyncratic Australian film and theatre director, brought his stunning 1990 Opera Australia production of Puccini's La Bohème from Sydney Opera House to Broadway, a tale of a consumptive heroine and her bohemian friends living in rooftop Parisian digs. Now 17 years later, we're back in similar territory for this bedazzling stage transition of Luhrmann's 2001 film "Moulin Rouge!," which underlines just how much La Bohème inspired it -- an opera that also provided the...
