Moulin Rouge! is directed by multiple Tony Award winner Alex Timbers with music direction, orchestrations, and arrangements by Justin Levine, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh. The story 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 approximately the turn of the 20th century during a period known as La Belle Époque in Paris, the bohemian paradise of France in Montmartre. The narrative centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just showed up in Paris on a quest of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a mesmerizing courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the notorious 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 wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s joyfully more inclusive than the film, and the well-known songs really are spectacular.”
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."
