It's been a hard year for Broadway amid the global pandemic closures, but things are looking up for one particular show. 'Moulin Rouge! The Musical' was the biggest winner at the 74th Annual Tony Awards, taking home an incredible 10 awards from its 14 nominations—including Best Musical.
'Moulin Rouge!' is the first Australian-produced musical to originate on Broadway. It opened July 2019, though the pandemic closures cut its successful run short. But at this year's Tony Awards, postponed from 2020, the musical's return to the stage was celebrated by a string of wins including Best Direction of a Musical, Best Choreography, Best Orchestrations, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (Aaron Tveit), Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical (Danny Burstein), Best Scenic Design in a Musical, Best Costume Design in a Musical, Best Lighting Design in a Musical, and Best Sound Design of a Musical. Safe to say: it's a must-see!
