Freedom! Beauty! Truth! Love! Broadway! Baz Luhrmann’s beloved 2001 film Moulin Rouge! comes to Broadway, with a cast including Tony winner Karen Olivo, Aaron Tveit, and six-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein. Directed by two-time Tony nominee Alex Timbers, Moulin Rouge! has a book by Tony winner John Logan (Red), choreography by Sonya Tayeh (Kung Fu), and music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Justin Levine (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).
Set in 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.
