Moulin Rouge! the Musical is performing live this season at the amazing Rochester Auditorium Theatre on Friday 10th November 2023!
John Cardoza, best known for starring in The Notebook, The Karate Kid - The Musical, and Jagged Little Pill, will embrace the role of Christian in the North American trek.

Moulin Rouge! is directed by Tony Award winner Alex Timbers with music direction and orchestrations by Justin Levine, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh. The story is written by John Logan, whose previous 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, France's bohemian paradise in Montmartre. The story centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just arrived in Paris in search of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a captivating courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the infamous 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 writes. There is a lot to like about the vibrant energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are amazing.”
