Moulin Rouge! the Musical is taking the stage this season at the iconic Benedum Center on Tuesday 3rd October 2023!
John Cardoza, best known for starring in The Notebook, The Karate Kid - The Musical, and Jagged Little Pill, will embrace the role of Christian in the North American trek. Cardoza will co-star with Courtney Reed, reprising the role of Satine, Austin Durant as Harold Zidler, Nick Rashad Burroughs as Toulouse-Lautrec, Andrew Brewer as The Duke of Monroth, Libby Lloyd as Nini, and Gabe Martínez as Santiago.
Moulin Rouge! is directed by multiple Tony Award winner Alex Timbers with music direction and orchestrations by Justin Levine, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh. The narrative is written by John Logan, whose past Broadway work includes the critically acclaimed productions like Red and Sting's The Last Ship.
The drama is set in the turn of the 20th century during a time known as La Belle Époque in Paris, France's bohemian paradise in Montmartre. The narrative centers on Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just arrived in Paris in search of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a stunning courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the infamous Moulin Rouge nightclub.
“At the end of the 19th century, when our hopeless romantic lead walks through Montmartre for the first time, all he can see is ‘dazzling chaos’. That’s what this raucous new production of Moulin Rouge! exudes in spades,” the Guardian shares. There is a lot to like about the vibrant energy throughout, it’s joyfully more inclusive than the film, and the well-known songs really are stunning.”
The Musical for New York Theatre Guide, states Moulin Rouge is universally acclaimed as a show that has it all. "It's not just 70 SONGS that are rolled into one show, but also a canvas of spectacle and emotion that isn't just a floorshow but left me floored with its sublime artistry."
In the style of the iconic Moulin Rouge in Paris, the Moulin Rouge nightclub you will experience in person at the majestic Benedum Center is a creation of theatrical imagination. Grab your tickets now and get ready for an unforgettable night of glamor, song, and dazzling performances!
