JUST ANNOUNCED! Moulin Rouge: The Musical is coming to Boston!
Emerson College broke the news at a live press event at the Colonial Theatre this afternoon.
Moulin Rouge: The Musical is currently in development in New York, with a target Boston run beginning in June 2018.
The musical adaptation is based on Baz Luhrmann's 2001 hit film, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
The production has tapped some experienced performers to bring the Parisian romance to the stage.
Broadway stars Aaron Tveit (Frank Abagnale Jr. in "Catch Me If You Can") and Tony Award winner Karen Olivo (Anita in the 2009 Broadway revival of "West Side Story") lead the cast as Christian and Satine, with director Alex Timbers and choreographer Sonya Tayeh also attached.
