The musical won 10 Tony Awards in 2021, two days after it resumed performances following the shutdown. “Throughout the shutdown we were faced with the difficult decision of whether to continue the international roll-out of the show,” said producer Carmen Pavlovic in a statement. “The answer was in front of our eyes. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a story about the resilience of artists, and the necessity of art. Proceeding was the only choice.”
Adapted for the stage from Baz Luhrmann's film , Alex Timbers directs the musical which won Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Director for Timbers, Best Book of a Musical for John Logan, Best Choreography for Sonya Tayeh, and Best Orchestrations for Justin Levine, who incorporated the pop hits featured in the original movie as well as further hit songs released since the film's debut into the score.
