It’s spectacular spectacular news for musicals fans – after ten years in development, a run on Broadway, and a delay due to the pandemic, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is finally coming to the West End. Alex Timbers’ stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 film follows the original story – penniless writer Christian falls in love with courtesan Satine but the pair have to hide their relationship so nightclub owner Harold Zidler can secure funds for the venue’s transformation from The Duke, who wants Satine for himself.
All the iconic songs like ‘Come What May’ and ‘Lady Marmalade’ are in there too along with a whole load of new additions, including hits from Whitney, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Adele and Lady Gaga, so there’ll be even more songs to can-can along to. The show isn’t opening at the Piccadilly Theatre until November but tickets go on sale on 24th May so you can get booking.
