The first North American tour of the Broadway hit “Moulin Rouge! The Musical,” featuring songs by Beyonce and Katy Perry will play Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre in 2020, it was announced Thursday.

Featuring recent hits (or samplings of songs) by Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and more (in addition to much of the film’s original lineup of music), and based on the 2001 hit film by Baz Luhrmann, the musical will play here for 10 weeks, Dec. 17, 2020 to February 21, 2021.

“After ten years in development, the fantastic response to ‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’ in New York is mind-blowing,” said producer Carmen Pavlovic, via statement. “It’s thrilling that a second company will be going out to audiences across North America just one year after the Broadway opening.”

The musical features a book by John Logan, choreography by Sonya Tayeh, and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine.
