Moulin Rouge! The Musical

Moulin Rouge! The Musical

UPDATE: This production is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned for more information.

Tickets are on sale now for Moulin Rouge! The Musical, which begins 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.

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 is 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.

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.

About Moulin Rouge! The Musical:

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.

Our Moulin Rouge! The Musical Review

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 "... Read more
