Producer Carmen Pavlovic (Global Creatures) has announced that Moulin Rouge! The Musical, based on the 2001 Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture by Baz Luhrmann, will play a world pre-Broadway engagement at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre next Summer.

Directed by Alex Timbers, performances of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, with a book by John Logan, begin at the newly refurbished Emerson Colonial Theatre late June, 2018. Reviving a great theatrical tradition, Boston’s newly restored The Emerson Colonial Theatre (106 Boylston Street) will officially re-open its doors with the highly anticipated pre-Broadway World Premiere engagement of Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

Carmen Pavlovic said “I am thrilled that Moulin Rouge! The Musical will premiere at the magnificent Emerson Colonial Theatre, a venue with a rich theatrical history. It is a great honor to relight one of America’s best loved theatres, where unforgettable musicals like Oklahoma!, Carousel, La Cage aux Folles, Grand Hotel and Follies were first seen by theatre audiences in Boston before going on to Broadway. I applaud ATG for saving this theatre and thank them for inviting us into their newest home. We’re excited to be one step closer to making the much anticipated premiere of Moulin Rouge! The Musical a reality.”

“Restoring the venerable Emerson Colonial Theatre to its former glory has been central to ATG’s role in revitalizing theater across America. We couldn’t be more excited for Moulin Rouge! to help us reopen this landmark venue which is so important to this history of the American Theater. We can’t wait to welcome Boston audiences, and patrons from all across the country, to this beautiful home,” said Ambassador Theatre Group‘s leadership team: Kristin Caskey, Executive Vice-President of Content & Creative, North America; and Stephen Lewin, CEO, North America.
