Originally premiering at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre to critical acclaim, the stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s classic musical jukebox film Moulin Rouge! opens in New York this spring. A theatrical extravaganza full of pop hits, Moulin Rouge! The Musical will dazzle theatergoers at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre from June 28 2019.

Set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris at the turn of the 20th century, Moulin Rouge! The Musical invites audiences into a world of excess and grandeur, where bohemians mingle with aristocrats and the champagne flows freely. Amidst the glamor and music of the famous Moulin Rouge dance hall, composer Christian and star chanteuse Satine become doomed lovers.

Stars Karen Olivo and Aaron Tveit reprise their roles as Satine and Christian for Broadway. Olivo is a Tony Award-winning actress whose credits include West Side Story, In the Heights and Rent. Tveit has appeared on Broadway and the West End, in productions including Assassins, Catch Me If You Can and Wicked. On screen, he played Enjolras in Tom Hooper’s 2012 adaptation of Les Misérables.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical features a book by Tony Award-winning playwright John Logan, whose other work includes Red and Peter and Alice for the stage, and The Aviator, Skyfall and Penny Dreadful for the screen. Director Alex Timbers (Rocky, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) pulls double duty on Broadway with his production of Beetlejuice at the Winter Garden Theatre opening on March 28. Emmy Award nominee and choreographer Sonya Tayeh and designer Dereck McLane are also part of the creative team.

With an updated playlist remixing the film’s soundtrack with 21st century pop classics, Moulin Rouge! The Musical at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre celebrates truth, beauty, freedom and love. This enchanting theatrical celebration lands in New York on June 28, with an opening night set for July 25 2019.
