New Book MOULIN ROUGE! THE MUSICAL: THE STORY OF THE BROADWAY SPECTACULAR To Be Released October 2022

The book will feature a foreword by Moulin Rouge! film director, Baz Luhrmann.

MOULIN ROUGE! THE MUSICAL: THE STORY OF THE BROADWAY SPECTACULAR is a glittering backstage pass to the Tony Award-winning musical, with contributions from cast and crew, interviews with creator Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin, and a chronicle of its triumphant 2021 return to the Great White Way.

An iconic Parisian club, a cinema masterpiece, and now a hit Broadway musical-the Moulin Rouge has been a tantalizing pop-culture phenomenon for over a century. The 2019 Broadway debut of Moulin Rouge! The Musical astounded theater critics and theater goers alike and received fourteen Tony Award nominations winning ten including Best Musical.

Via a lush photo essay and oral history, the process of crafting MOULIN ROUGE! THE MUSICAL springs to life from early sketches, historical research, technical diagrams, and rehearsal photos. Theater writer David Cote gathers the cast and crew's firsthand accounts of the excitement and challenges of creating a show that referenced as much as it reinvented the Broadway musical. From set and costume design to casting and opening night, readers witness the creation and birth of this gem in modern musical theater.

For lovers of musicals, fans of the movie, or anyone fascinated by the glamorous Belle Époque, this exquisitely realized book will seduce all-bohemian and aristocrat alike.
