Moulin Rouge! The Musical
Time Out says
The acclaimed Broadway musical version of Baz Lurhmann’s kitsch masterpiece is heading to London
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir? Well, maybe not. Not without dinner first. But very soon you will have the option to spend your evening at ‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’, the wildly acclaimed Broadway stage ‘remix’ of Baz Lurhmann’s fabulous jukebox feature film, which follows the romance of writer Christian and dancer Satine as they meet at fall in love at the famous cabaret club in pre-war Paris.
Bagging itself a walloping ten Tonys at September’s much-delayed Broadway theatre awards – that’s just one less than ‘Hamilton’ – the production is directed by Alex Timbers, who helmed up David Byrne’s immersive musical ‘Here Lies Love’ at the National Theatre a few years back. IThe cast will be led by newcomer Jamie Bogyo as Christian and US singing star Liisi LaFontaine as Satine, with Clive Carter as Moulin Rouge impresario Harold Zidler and Simon Bailey as The Duke, and Jason Pennycooke and Elia Lo Tauro as the Bohemians Toulouse-Lautrec and Santiago.
