“Euphoric. Gasp-inspiring. Indulgent delights are abundant in this spectacular musical. In Moulin Rouge, life is beautiful” - The New York Times.
Moulin Rouge! the Musical is taking the stage this season at the amazing Rochester Auditorium Theatre on Sunday 19th November 2023!
John Cardoza, best known for starring in The Notebook, The Karate Kid - The Musical, and Jagged Little Pill, will take on the role of Christian in the North American tour. Cardoza will co-star with Courtney Reed, reprising the role of Satine, Austin Durant as Harold Zidler, Nick Rashad Burroughs as Toulouse-Lautrec, Andrew Brewer as The Duke of Monroth, Libby Lloyd as Nini, and Gabe Martínez as Santiago.
Moulin Rouge! is directed by multiple Tony Award winner Alex Timbers with music direction, orchestrations, and arrangements by Justin Levine, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh. The narrative is written by John Logan, whose past Broadway work includes the critically acclaimed production of Red and Sting's The Last Ship.
The drama is set in approximately the turn of the 20th century during a period known as La Belle Époque in Paris, the bohemian paradise of France in Montmartre. The story centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just landed in Paris on a quest of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a mesmerizing courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the notorious Moulin Rouge nightclub.
“At the end of the 19th century, when our hopeless romantic lead walks through Montmartre for the first time, all he can see is ‘dazzling chaos’. That’s what this raucous new production of Moulin Rouge! exudes in spades,” the Guardian shares. There is a lot to like about the wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s joyfully more inclusive than the film, and the well-known songs really are amazing.”
The Musical for New York Theatre Guide, announces Moulin Rouge is universally acclaimed as a show that has it all. "It's not just 70 SONGS that are rolled into one show, but also a canvas of spectacle and EMOTION that isn't just a floorshow but left me floored with its sublime artistry."
In the style of the iconic Moulin Rouge in Paris, the Moulin Rouge club you will experience in person at the majestic Rochester Auditorium Theatre is a creation of theatrical imagination. Secure your tix now and get ready for an awe-inspiring night of glamor, song, and breathtaking performances!
