After winning Best Revival Of A Musical for “Once on This Island,” RMT is bringing another Tony Award home. This time as part of the production team for Broadway’s “Moulin Rouge! The Musical.”

This jukebox musical—a show that uses a mix of popular music instead of original pieces—is the stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 film of the same name.

FUN FACT: The musical’s score includes both original songs and popular music, including newer songs like “Some Nights” by Fun and “Firework” by Katy Perry.

“Broadway is back and we are honored to be a part of this award-winning musical, thanks to the generosity of Kathryn & Raymond Harbert. Congratulations to the entire production team on ‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’. Producing this show was a great opportunity and we are thrilled at the show’s recognition.”

Keith Cromwell, RMT Executive Director

Congrats Moulin Rouge!

Though the pandemic shortened last year’s Broadway season, “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” knows that show must go on. In fact, “Moulin Rouge” received 14 Tony nominations and won 10 of them. Not only did they win Best Musical, but Best Orchestrations and Best Choreography.

All thanks to Red Mountain Theatre’s awesome co-producer skills. That’s so exciting!
