“Yes they can-can! ‘Moulin Rouge!’ has a battery that never runs down.” – Variety by Bob Verini

Set on the brink of the 20th century in 1899 against a Parisian backdrop, Moulin Rouge! The Musical follows a lovestruck poet from England named Christian and Satine, a cabaret dancer, who performs at the notorious Moulin Rouge club, otherwise known as the place “where all your dreams come true.”
As the story comes to life on stage, Christian arrives at the club with kindred spirits: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and the Argentinean Santiago. Meanwhile, the story welcomes the Duke of Monroth, a man driven by wealth and lust.
Moulin Rouge is a charming love story about two souls entangled in a forbidden romance. While Satine falls madly in love with the English poet, she has been bound to the Duke through an arrangement made by the club’s manager. Satine is to wed the aristocrat in return for funding the next cabaret performance. As the young lovers’ romance blossoms behind closed doors, the dancer’s wedding day looms closer and closer. Yet, she hides a secret from both men.
Moulin Rouge! The Musical’s soundtrack artfully features all the amazing original songs from the 2001 movie. But there’s a twist! The show also features beloved tracks that have topped the charts over the 22 years since the movie hit the big screen. EXCITING STUFF!!
