Welcome bohemians and aristocrats, boulevardiers and mademoiselles to the MOULIN ROUGE!, the highly anticipated, world-premiere musical based on Baz Luhrmann’s Academy Award®-winning film.
Experience the sweeping grandeur of Paris’ most spectacular dance hall. Directed by Tony® nominee Alex Timbers, with a book by Tony® winner John Logan, music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Justin Levine, and choreography by Emmy® nominee Sonya Tayeh, the stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and new hits released since its premiere.
Set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, France at the turn of the century, a world of indulgent beauty and unparalleled extravagance, MOULIN ROUGE! 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.
Escape to a place of unparalleled extravagance at the MOULIN ROUGE!
