The new stage musical adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge, which is set to begin previews June 27 at Boston’s Colonial Theatre, has extended its pre-Broadway run for an additional 16 performances. Originally scheduled to run through August 5, the out-of-town world premiere will now play through August 19.

Directed by Tony nominee Alex Timbers, Moulin Rouge! will officially open July 22.

Aaron Tveit and Tony Award winner Karen Olivo will co-star as Christian and Satine, respectively. The roles were originated on screen by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in the 2001 film.
