Yes You Can Can Can Watch the New "Moulin Rouge" Musical Trailer—and See the Full Cast List

How excited are you for the musical version of Moulin Rouge!, choreographed by Sonya Tayeh and set to begin a pre-Broadway run in Boston next month? 💃💃💃 excited?

Well, you'll be 💃💃💃💃 excited once you see the very swoon-y new trailer for the show, starring the very swoon-worthy Aaron Tveit (possibly the only person who could make us forget about Ewan McGregor's Christian). And you'll be 💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃 excited after seeing the full cast list—because it includes a ton of talented dancers.


First, watch the trailer (directed by frequent dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz), in which Tveit belts "Come What May" in a romantic theater filled with love letters and rose petals and what appears to be golden snow. You know. As one does.

Then take a look at the cast list, which not only includes Tveit and Karen Olivo (YAAS Anita/Vanessa!), but also a gaggle of our favorite veteran Broadway dancers, like Paloma Garcia-Lee, Bahiyah Hibah, and Morgan Marcell. Here's the whole roster, per the press release:

Moulin Rouge! The Musical will star the previously announced Karen Olivo (Tony Award® for West Side Story, In the Heights), Aaron Tveit (Catch Me If You Can, Next to Normal), Danny Burstein (six-time Tony Award®-nominee, Fiddler On the Roof, Cabaret), Sahr Ngaujah (Tony® and Olivier award-nominated for Fela), Tam Mutu (Doctor Zhivago, Encores' Hey, Look Me Over! and The New Yorkers), Ricky Rojas (Burn the Floor) and Robyn Hurder (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Chicago).
