The spectacular Broadway production of Moulin Rouge! The Musical that has already created a big buzz across the pond will have its West End opening at the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2021. Come what may, we’re excited.

Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage in this first UK production, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza directed by Alex Timbers.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical has a book by John Logan, choreography by Sonya Tayeh and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine. The design team includes Derek McLane (sets) and Catherine Zuber (costumes).

“After ten years in development, and following the fantastic response to Moulin Rouge! The Musical in New York, we are thrilled to be sharing this musical with audiences in the UK. We can’t wait to bring the show to London!” said producer Carmen Pavlovic, Global Creatures.

As in the film, Moulin Rouge! The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the last 50 years. The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and also includes recent hits released since the movie premiered 18 years ago.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is currently playing on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre where it opened to critical acclaim on 25 July 2019. Further productions have also been announced for Australia and a North American tour.
