This is what the press is saying about the album:

“…don’t let yourself miss out on the colorful psychoses of this rollercoaster ride of mash-ups.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Excuse me while I go listen to Aaron Tveit belting “Rolling in the Deep” until the Earth’s temperatures become too hot to support human life. I think I’ve got a least a dozen listens left. Join me.” – Vulture

“…an artful mashup of pop hits from across the decades. “Crazy Rolling” is one of the most memorable of the new compositions: the mix of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” and Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” is seamless and powerful…” – Time

“…its truly well worth a listen if you are a music lover. We defy you not to listen to it and sing along.” – Celeb Mix

Moulin Rouge! The Musical, directed by Alex Timbers and with a book by John Logan, choreography by Sonya Tayeh and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine, is now playing on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 W. 45th Street, NYC). A North American tour will launch in Fall of 2020. For more information and to buy tickets, go to www.MoulinRougeMusical.com.

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. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom, and — above all — love.  Moulin Rouge! The Musical is more than a musical; it is a state of mind.

“Spectacular! Euphoric! In Moulin Rouge! The Musical, life is beautiful,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. “Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a fabulous new musical. The high begins the instant you walk into the theatre,” says Johnny Oleksinski of the NY Post. And Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly concludes that “it’s easy to believe that Moulin Rouge! The Musical could run for 50 years.”

As in the film, Moulin Rouge! The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the last 50 years. The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and also includes recent hits released since the movie premiered 18 years ago.

Global Creatures (Carmen Pavlovic and Gerry Ryan OAM) serves as Lead Producer and Bill Damaschke is the executive producer. General management is by Foresight Theatrical.

The Moulin Rouge of Paris is a dazzling and spectacular universe, the symbol of the Parisian way of celebrating since 1889. Starting life as a popular cabaret and dance hall, the venue became an iconic music hall in the Roaring Twenties, and then a theatre where numerous famous French and international artistes stepped out into the limelight.
