Watch the New, High-Energy Trailer for Broadway's Moulin Rouge! | Playbill

Broadway News Watch the New, High-Energy Trailer for Broadway's Moulin Rouge! The new musical, based on the Baz Luhrmann film, opens in July.

First, it was steamy. Now, it's decidedly more action-packed. Check out a near teaser trailer for Broadway's upcoming Moulin Rouge! video above. The latest sneak peek—titled "TRUTH!"—follows an earlier Valentine's Day trailer aptly named "LOVE!".

The Alex Timbers-directed musical adaptation of the Baz Luhrmann film is set to begin performances at Braodway's Al Hirschfeld Theatre June 28 before officially opening July 25.

Sahr Ngaujah takes center stage in the new video as Toulouse-Lautrec, ominously looking into the camera to say, "I am an artist. You should quake at that." Also prominently featured are star Aaron Tveit as Christian and Ricky Rojas as Santiago.

Among those joining the trio are Tony winner Karen Olivo as Satine, Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Harold Zidler, Robyn Hurder as Nini, and Tam Mutu as the Duke.


The show, featuring a book by John Logan, premiered last year in Boston and incorporates original songs and pop standards heard in the 2001 movie, as well as familiar tunes released in the 17 years since the star-crossed lovers first hit the screen.
