Moulin Rouge! The Musical is based on the Academy Award-winning 2001 Baz Luhrmann film, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. While the original film changed the future possibilities of movie musicals, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is the gold standard of jukebox musicals.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical played a 2-week engagement at Boston’s Colonial Theatre before taking over Broadway by storm and winning 10 Tony Awards. The whole world’s fallen for Christian and Satine’s love story, with productions on Broadway, in Australia, and in London. How wonderful life is with this show in the world.
