"Moulin Rouge! The Musical" Wants to Send You to Paris—and NYC

Well, this is just...SPECTACULAR SPECTACULAR. As if the upcoming Broadway run of Moulin Rouge! The Musical wasn't already "so exciting," the show has announced that one fan (plus their dance bestie) will get to go on an all-expenses-paid trip not only to Paris (the setting of Moulin Rouge!) but also to NYC (to catch opening night of the musicalization). The only catch is that by entering the contest, you automatically sign up for email updates from the show—which, let's be honest, you probably want anyway if you've already read this far. Safe to say that this is (as Harold Zidler would say) "magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan, bedazzlement!"

The winner will be announced on June 28, which just so happens to be the first day of Broadway previews. So what are you waiting for? The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just...how great it would be to win this sweepstakes. (Yeahhhhh didn't think that one through very well, but also couldn't resist.🤷🏼♀️)

These days, she splits her time between NYC and Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to beef up her classical training at The Rock School for Dance Education.

She's not a traditional bunhead, and she's not a run-of-the-mill social influencer, either. Instead, Ware is creating her own hybrid career path—and it's taking her to impressive places.
