Moulin Rouge! the Musical is taking the stage this season at the iconic Sheas Performing Arts Center on Friday 3rd November 2023!
John Cardoza, best known for roles in The Notebook, The Karate Kid - The Musical, and Jagged Little Pill, will take on the role of Christian in the North American tour. 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 tale is written by John Logan, whose previous Broadway work includes the critically acclaimed production of Red and Sting's The Last Ship.
The drama is set around the turn of the 20th century during a time known as La Belle Époque in Paris, the bohemian paradise of France in Montmartre. The story centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just landed in Paris in search of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a captivating 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 writes. There is a lot to love about the wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are amazing.”
The Musical for New York Theatre Guide, announces Moulin Rouge is widely revered 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 club you will experience in person at the stunning Sheas Performing Arts Center is a creation of theatrical imagination. Reserve your tickets now and brace yourself for an awe-inspiring night of glamour, music, and dazzling performances!
