Moulin Rouge! The Musical
One of the most beloved movies of the 21st century, Moulin Rouge captured the hearts of audiences across the world with its tragic love story and monumental score. Now, following a delightful world premiere in Boston in 2018, this a spellbinding and captivating stage musical will finally make its Broadway bow in summer 2019, with riginal stars Aaron Tviet and Karen Olivo reprising their roles as Christian and Satine.
Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge is cemented into the world-wide cannon of iconic movies in history. With a glittering cast featuring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, and a set which would astound the most cynical viewer it's no wonder that Moulin Rouge went on to be one of the most award-nominated movies of all time. When released in the early 2000s Moulin Rouge was nominated for an outstanding 129 awards, winning two Academy Awards, three Golden Globes and one BAFTA. Moulin Rouge's success certainly cemented Luhrmann's stake as a global movie icon.
Due to its sparkling success, it's no wonder that director Alex Timbers was keen to take up the previous dormant torch of stage adaptation and light it once more.
What's Moulin Rouge all about?
