Directed by Alex Timbers with a book by John Logan and choreography by Sonya Tayeh, Moulin Rouge! first opened on Broadway in 2019 following a Boston try-out. Based on the Baz Luhrmann-directed movie of the same name, the score features covers of "Fireworks" by Katy Perry, "Your Song" by Elton John, and "Chandelier" by Sia, among many others. The story takes place at Paris's famed Moulin Rouge and follows the tragic love story between performer Satine and composer Christian.
The production's music team includes Justin Levine and Ted Arthur as musical supervisors, Matt Stone as music producer, and Andrew Graham as music director. Orchestrations are by Levine, Stone, Katie Kresek, and Charlie Rosen, with dance arrangements by Levine and Stein and Michael Aarons as music coordinator.
Also in the creative team are Derek McLane as scenic designer, Catherine Zuber as costume designer, Justin Townsend as lighting designer, Peter Hylenski as sound designer, David Brian Brown as hair designer, Sarah Cimino as makeup designer, and creative services by Luhrmann and Catherine Martin. Casting is led by Jim Carnahan and Stephen Kopel, with Jeff Norman as stage manager. The creative team swept the 2020 Tony Awards, winning for Best Direction (Timbers), Choreography (Tayeh), Orchestrations (Levine, Stine, Kresek, and Rosen), Scenic Design (McLane), Costumes (Catherine Zuber), Lighting (Townsend), and Sound (Hylenski).
