Get ready to find your inner freedom, beauty, truth, and love, as Moulin Rouge! The Musical will play an extended booking period. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is now at the Piccadilly Theatre to 23 July, and Moulin Rouge! The Musical tickets for the new booking period are available now.
Based on the 2001 film of the same name, Moulin Rouge! The Musical follows an American writer, Christian, who visits Paris for literary inspiration, and later falls in love with the Moulin Rouge sensation, Satine. At the same time, the Duke of Monroth is vying for Satine's affection, and sparks fly in the Parisian cabaret.
After previews began at the Piccadilly Theatre in November, Moulin Rouge! The Musical officially opened last night, 20 January. In a four-star review for London Theatre, our critic said: "This, mon chérie, is an all-new, all-adrenaline rush of a show that leverages the movie's magic and adds the secret ingredient: theatrical magic."
