The stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 film will begin previews July 10 at the Emerson Colonial Theatre. The Alex Timbers-helmed production was initially slated to begin June 27, though a construction-related incident delayed the musical’s premiere.
The production stars Aaron Tveit and Tony winner Karen Olivo as Christian and Satine, respectively. Also featured in the cast are six-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Harold Zidler, Tony and Olivier nominee Sahr Ngaujah as Toulouse-Lautrec, Tam Mutu as the Duke of Monroth, Ricky Rojas as Santiago, and Robyn Hurder as Nini.
Moulin Rouge! is expected to transfer to Broadway, though no word yet on a theatre or dates. The stage production features songs from the film's soundtrack, in addition to recent pop hits released since its premiere.
