Moulin Rouge! is directed by Tony Award winner Alex Timbers with musical direction, orchestrations, and arrangements 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 approximately the turn of the 20th century during a period 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 pursuit of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a mesmerizing 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 wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are stunning.”
The Musical for New York Theatre Guide, writes 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."
