Moulin Rouge confirmed for the West End
It was confirmed earlier this month that Baz Luhrmann’s hit movie musical ‘Moulin Rouge’ would be brought to life on the stage.
The show is currently in development with Alex Timbers directing and John Logan creating the book. Venues and dates are yet to be announced.
The 2001 film starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor was nominated for eight Oscars and won two. Lurhmann said he was tremendously happy to celebrate that Moulin Rouge on stage will be directed by Alex Timbers and he was also glad that John Logan who is such a talented writer would be creating the script.
Moulin Rouge tells the story of Christian, a young writer/poet, who falls in love with a star of the Moulin Rouge and cabaret actress set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris in France.
