It was inevitable. “Moulin Rouge” is on its way.
The hit production from Boston, directed by Alex Timbers, will arrive next July at the Al Hirschfeld Theater.
Leading the cast are Aaron Tviet, Karen Olivo, and Danny Burstein. The latter will just be coming off a run in “My Fair Lady.”
“Moulin Rouge” is based on Baz Luhrmann’s movie starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. It’s kind of a jukebox musical, with lots and lots of existing pop music but no new score. Derek McLane is doing the sets. Catherine Zuber is on costumes.
The show comes to us from Australian company Global Creatures, producers of the current “King Kong” extravaganza.
