December 15th, 2020 | By Caitlin Moynihan

It’s been over nine months since it was first announced that Broadway would shutdown due to COVID-19. Originally announced to last one month, the shutdown has been extended to last at least through May 30, 2021. In a touching new video, the cast and creative team of Moulin Rouge promises audiences they “will be back.” See behind-the-scenes footage of Tony nominees Aaron Tveit, Karen Olivo, Danny Burstein, Sahr Ngaujah and Robyn Hurder on stage and in rehearsal while its Tony-nominated director Alex Timbers encourages viewers by saying, “Moulin Rouge isn’t just a story about show people. It’s also a story about the grit and resilience of artists. Artists are strong. Artists are necessary. We will be back, and we’ll write the ending of this story together.” The tribute also¬†encourages viewers to donate to The Actors Fund. Watch the full video below!
