Producers of Moulin Rouge! The Musical announced today that the production will commemorate its 100th Broadway performance by partnering with the organization Broadway for All to welcome 70 New York City area arts students as special guests at today's matinee performance. Following the show, the students will have the opportunity to participate in a talkback with the cast, led by Tony Award-winner Karen Olivo.

"Since opening on Broadway, our cast has been eager to find ways to honor and support emerging artists," said producer Carmen Pavlovic. "We're pleased to invite these young performers and artists to see our show. Partnering with Broadway For All gives us a special way to celebrate our 100th performance."

"We are humbled by the generosity of the Moulin Rouge! The Musical producers and cast for making the choice to pay-it-forward and share their celebration with the next generation of artists and creators," said Broadway For All Founder & President Osh Ghanimah. "We are thankful to the Moulin Rouge! family for leading by example and reinforcing Broadway For All's core values - artistry, professionalism, and compassion - as we work in partnership to forge a promising direction for a more inclusive American stage and screen."

Initially founded through the Presidential Public Service Fellowship program at Harvard University in 2012, Broadway For All is a movement whose mission is to transform the American stage and screen to reflect the diversity of America. Broadway For All brings together artists from all socio-economic levels and all ethnic backgrounds in a world-class conservatory setting- led by Broadway, television, and film industry professionals - to develop a new generation of artists, leaders and advocates who are impassioned to create anti-racist and inclusive work for all.
