Tell Me More

At the Moulin Rouge, the show must go on — even for the club’s breathtaking star Satine, who’s torn between the man she loves and the wealthy Duke she’s been promised to in an effort to keep the Parisian cabaret afloat. Set at the turn of the 20th century in Paris, the musical follows what happens when Satine’s world is turned upside down when the writer Christian moves to the city of love in search of artistic purpose — and finds a muse in the main attraction. Christian writes a show starring Satine to save the Moulin Rouge, and their love blossoms behind the scenes — until Christian realizes there’s more than just the villainous Duke putting a stop to their showmance.

Based on the award-winning 2001 Baz Luhrmann film, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, Moulin Rouge! The Musical transports audiences to the Bohemian underground. It's a glamorous world filled with spectacle and glamour that you won't want to leave. Directed by Alex Timbers and featuring a book by John Logan and new musical arrangements by Justin Levine, the production uses over 70 classic pop songs to reimagine the hit movie for the stage.

What to watch for

  • In the movie, Christian is an Englishman. In Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Christian is an American who is fleeing the Industrial Revolution in search of artistic purpose.
  • Baz Luhrmann, who directed and co-wrote the iconic 2001 film, came from a very artistic background. His mother was a ballroom-dance instructor who gave him lessons early on, and his father insisted he study painting and music.
  • Luhrmann says that director Alex Timbers “feels like a younger cousin,” and Timbers says he’s been very inspired by Luhrmann’s work. Luhrmann has watched performances of Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway, and is a keen supporter of the show.
  • New pop hits have been added to the score of the Moulin Rouge! musical, including songs by Outkast, Sia, Beyoncé, Fun, Adele, Lorde, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. All your favorite songs from the Moulin Rouge! movie are in there too, including "Come What May" and "Lady Marmalade."
