Le Burlesque au Moulin

Media Release

Immediate

After the success of the 2011 Wellington Premiere production of Jonathan Larson’s Rent and this years A Trip Across The Universe: Music and Lyrics by The Beatles, the winning team from Speakeasy Theatre Ltd. brings Le Burlesque Au Moulin to Wellington this October. In association with Backyard Theatre, this new production features the songs heard in the 2001 Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge and the more recent Christina Aguilera/Cher vehicle Burlesque. The world premiere of this exciting new stage show is THE event in this year's entertainment calendar!

Set in the Jardin de Paris, at the foot of the Montmarte Hill, Le Burlesque Au Moulin is a tale of desire. As the show’s narrator puts it: “Everyone comes to Paris searching for something…” “Le Burlesque Au Moulin” follows the lives of dancers, singers, artists, poets and dreamers on a journey to discover themselves, their art and love. Step into the decadent world of the Bohemian Culture, the mysterious drink Absinthe and the ecstasies and dangers of the Burlesque Lounge at the world famous Moulin Rouge. Le Burlesque Au Moulin features songs from both films including Lady Marmalade, Your Song, Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend, The Show Must Go On, But I'm A Good Girl, Something's Got A Hold Of Me and many more!

As with previous Speakeasy shows, the cast is the Crème de la Crème of Wellington talent.
Le Burlesque Au Moulin boasts a cast of twenty singers, actors and circus performers including a six-strong dance troupe led by Choreographer Stacey Neale. Musical Director Bruno Shirley is extremely excited to present a live band which he’s described as “The best up-and-coming musical talents Wellington has seen!” After April’s sell-out A Trip Across The Universe: Music and Lyrics by The Beatles, Director Stuart James is eager for the Wellington public to see Le Burlesque Au Moulin, “We have an unbelievably talented cast, presenting to you their own interpretations of some very well known songs. It’s their voices, their characters and their talents that drive the show and I’m certain Wellington will remember Le Burlesque Au Moulin for a long time!”

More details can be found on Speakeasy Theatre Ltd’s website www.speakeasytheatre.co.nz and Facebook or Twitter pages or at Backyardtheatre.co.nz.
