Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza.
The first UK production of the acclaimed show will open in London’s West End at the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2021 – directed by Alex Timbers.
“After ten years in development, and following the fantastic response to Moulin Rouge! The Musical in New York, we are thrilled to be sharing this musical with audiences in the UK. We can’t wait to bring the show to London!,” said producer Carmen Pavlovic.
Like the film, Moulin Rouge! The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the last 50 years. The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and also includes recent hits released since it premiered 18 years ago.
Enter a world of splendour and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular spectacular.
Moulin Rouge! The Musical is currently playing on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre where it opened to widespread critical acclaim on 25 July 2019. Further productions have also been announced for Australia and a North American Tour.
The stage musical is directed by Alex Timbers, features a book by John Logan, choreography by Sonya Tayeh and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine.
