After a string of successful shows at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre, Moulin Rouge!: The Musical is officially headed to Broadway in summer 2019.
The show, based on the popular 2001 Baz Luhrmann film of the same name starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, will begin previews at Broadway’s Al Hirschfield theatre on June 28, with its grand opening slated for July 25.
The big players in the Boston cast will reprise their roles next summer, including Aaron Tveit as Christian, Karen Olivo as Satine, and Danny Burstein as Harold Zidler.
“We are thrilled to be bringing Moulin Rouge!: The Musical to Broadway,” said producer Carmen Pavolvic to Entertainment Weekly. “We are especially delighted that the show is going to the Hirschfield – the perfect theater for this production with its lavish architecture and rich history of landmark Broadway shows.”
For those unfamiliar with the film, the story of Moulin Rouge! follows Christian and Satine as star-crossed lovers in 19th century Paris, with a score of memorable pop songs including new songs added for the stage production.
