It really is Spectacular, Spectacular. 

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is coming to London and we couldn’t be more excited.

The adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s iconic 2001 film has been playing in the Big Apple for the last few months.

According to The Evening Standardthe Broadway hit will be making its way to the West End in March 2021, when it opens in the Piccadily Theatre.

And while it features a number of songs from the movie, like Your Song and Come What May, it also features songs like Katy Perry’s Firework and Sia’s Chandelier. 

The description for the stage show reads:

“Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular spectacular…

“Welcome to Moulin Rouge! The Musical!

“Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza. A theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom and — above all — love, Moulin Rouge! is more than a musical; it is a state of mind.”

The original Broadway show features Les Miserables’ Aaron Tveit as Christian and Karen Olivo as Satine.

And while no casting has been confirmed just yet, tickets will be available to buy soon here.
