Ladies and Gentlemen coming to Moulin Rouge the msuical will be coming to the fabulous Piccadilly Theatre in London in March 2021. How can you not be enthralled. That’s right almost 20 years after the original films release the musical will be tearing it’s way through the London Zeitgeist.
“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.
Moulin Rouge promises to bring us into a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory!
From what I have seen it is everything bit the show that Baz Lurhaman gave us. So be prepared for a nice of excessive music and passionate madness.
The musical, which features a lavish, immersive set, follows aspiring writer Christian and dancer Satine as they fall in love. But pressure mounts on Satine as her boss, Moulin Rouge owner Harold Zidler, relies on her to appease the Duke of Monroth, whose money will keep the establishment running.
Moulin Rouge the Musical will feature not only the same plot as the movie but many of it’s songs too, though since times have changed the Musical has chosen to add in a few modern surprises for the audience.
