MOULIN ROUGE! More than a musical

The 10-time Tony Award-winning musical sees Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film come to life onstage remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza that is currently wowing audiences across the globe, from Broadway, to the West End and Perth is next. Produced by Global Creatures, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is the first Australian-produced musical to originate on Broadway.

Global Creatures CEO and Producer of Moulin Rouge! The Musical Carmen Pavlovic said, “We are so proud to bring this mammoth show with an all-Australian cast to Perth in 2023! We have been so overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of Australian audiences and we look forward to seeing Perth’s Crown Theatre ravishing in rouge when the production arrives there in February.”
