Something new and exciting is coming to Broadway, guys. It’s a Moulin Rouge musical. Global Creatures had turned Baz Luhrmaan Oscar-winning films into musicals. I’m sure they’ll have no problem with this one.
We don’t know when this show is coming to life, but rest assured, we’ll know eventually. We can’t tell you when we’ll know but we’ll know when we know.
“It’s immensely gratifying to know that a new wave of artists will be leading Moulin Rouge! into its rightful theatrical realm,” Lurhmaan stated.
“I first encountered Alex Timbers through the remarkable and inventive production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and the brilliance of Here Lies Love,” he added “I immediately recognized the young director’s creative spirit and felt we shared similar sensibilities and instincts. So I’m tremendously happy to celebrate that Moulin Rouge! will be under his direction and that the book will be the creation of the gifted Tony Award-winning playwright John Logan, whose writing I also admire deeply.”
