Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway Information

Moulin Rouge! The Musical began previews at Broadway's Al Hirschfield Theatre on 28 June 2019, before officially opening on 25 July 2019. The musical is based on the beloved 2001 Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture by Baz Luhrmann. See Broadway's Moulin Rouge! The Musical today. 

The production promises to "bring some of the most beloved popular music of the last 50 years to the stage" in what may be the most anticipated stage adaptation of the 21st century. It also features perhaps the most lavish set design on Broadway today, courtesy of Tony Award winner Derek McLane.

The original Broadway company was led by Broadway favorite Aaron Tveit as aspiring writer Christian and shooting star Karen Olivo as the beautiful courtisan, Satine, whilst six-time Tony Award nominee Danny Burstein is the host with the most as the Moulin Rouge's very own Harold Zidler. 

Natalie Mendoza will take over the role of Satine in Moulin Rouge! The Musical. In 2001, Mendoza starred in the Moulin Rouge! film as a featured can-can dancer. Now she'll play the leading lady in the musical adaptation.

Moulin Rouge! 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 jukebox movie musical starred Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGreggor and Jim Broadbent, along with John Leguizamo and Richard Roxburgh, and featured versions of popular songs such as "Lady Marmalade," "Material Girl," "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," "One Day I'll Fly Away," "Roxanne," and "Your Song," as well as the original song "Come What May."

The pre-Broadway world premiere engagement of Moulin Rouge! The Musical played Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre from June 27 through August 19, 2018.

Set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, France at the turn of the century, a world of indulgent beauty and unparalleled extravagance, of bohemians and aristocrats, of boulevardiers and mademoiselles, Moulin Rouge! The Musical tells the fictional story of an ambitious, lovesick writer, Christian, and a dazzling, entrancing chanteuse, Satine. Their lives collide at the Moulin Rouge with its many characters including the host of the Moulin Rouge, Harold Zidler; the brilliant and starving artist Toulouse-Lautrec; the greatest tango dancer - and gigolo - in all of Paris, Santiago; the tempting Nini; and The Duke of Monroth, the wealthy and entitled patron of the club who thinks he can buy anything he wants, including love.
