Moulin Rouge!2001’s Oscar-winning movie musical Moulin Rouge! is coming to the stage.

The theatrical adaptation will be written by John Logan and directed by Alex Timbers.

Baz Luhrmann has praised the choice of leadership in a statement.

“I first encountered Alex Timbers through remarkable and inventive production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and the brilliance of Here Lies Love. I immediately recognised the young director’s creative spirit and felt we shared similar sensibilities and instincts,” he said.

“It’s immensely gratifying to know that a new wave of artists will be leading Moulin Rouge! into its rightful theatrical realm,” he continued.

Moulin Rouge! follows the love story between a writer and cabaret star in Paris’ Montmartre neighbourhood and includes rock music, quick cuts, bright colours and wild glamour.
