    It has been confirmed that Baz Luhrmann’s hit film Moulin Rouge is being adapted into a stage musical.

    Moulin Rouge! The Musical will feature a book by Tony Award winner John Logan and direction by Tony nominee Alex Timbers.

    The Moulin Rouge musical was simultaneously announced in New York and Luhrmann’s native Australia on 1st September 2016, however a production spokesperson said the show’s opening city, opening venue and production timeline will be announced at a later date.

    There was also no word on whether the show would have an original score, or use pre-existing songs as the movie did.

    The 2001 Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe winning movie musical is set at a decadent Parisian nightclub in the bohemian quarter of Montmartre in the year 1900, and tells the story of a poet who becomes obsessed with a beautiful and charismatic singer and courtesan.

    In a statement, Baz Luhrmann said: “I’m tremendously happy to celebrate that Moulin Rouge! will be under [Alex Timbers] direction and that the book will be the creation of the gifted Tony Award-winning playwright John Logan whose writing I also admire deeply. It’s immensely gratifying to know that a new wave of artists will be leading Moulin Rouge! into its rightful theatrical realm.”
