VIDEO: Aaron Tveit Talks MOULIN ROUGE & Reveals His Favorite Broadway Show

By: Mar. 09, 2020

Aaron Tveit stopped by Rachael Ray's daytime talk show on Monday, March 9 to talk about his current role in Moulin Rouge!

During the interview, Tveit reveals his favorite Broadway show of all time! He said, "My favorite show of all time is, not to say a show I was in, but I did the show 'Next to Normal' years ago. That was a rock musical about people, you know, this woman struggling with mental illness; and kind of the impact it made for everybody we would talk to and see. That will always be very, very special to me."

Talking about Moulin Rouge, Tveit said, "Early on when we first started doing the show in Boston, we had no idea what the response was going to be... We had these mashups where it's four or five songs together; and to kind of hear them responding to the new song every time, within a song, was somehing we had no idea was going to happen. It's great because I think people are recognizing how this Pop music is telling a story."
