Moulin Rouge has parted ways with Tveit, Mutu, and Rojas
Aaron Tveit, Tam Mutu, and Ricky Rojas have played their last show on the stage of the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. All three of them are original cast members, having played Christian, The Duke of Monroth, and Santiago (respectively), with Tveit winning a Tony Award for his performance.
Natalie Mendoza, another cast member, albeit not original, also parts ways with the show. She took over the role of Satine from original actor Karen Olivo. This took place after the show’s return on Broadway after COVID in September 2021.
Tveit, Mutu, Rojas and Mendoza will be replaced by Ashley Loren, Derek Klena, Declan Bennett, and Caleb Marshall-Villarreal.
Derek Klena, a Tony nominee takes over the role of Christian from Tony Award winner Aaron Tveit. Loren was a Satine Alternate since the show’s debut. Caleb Marshall-Villarreal, an original cast member takes over the role of Santiago, while Declan Bennett steps up as The Duke of Monroth.
Al Hirschfeld Theatre
The Al Hirschfeld Theatre is located at 302 West 45th Street. It has a seating capacity of 1,424.
A wheelchair-accessible unisex restroom is available, step-free, on the Orchestra level of the building. Other restrooms one floor below (18 steps) and 20 steps up in the Mezzanine do not enable wheelchair access.
Moulin Rouge is a smash hit, so tickets for the Broadway show may be a little hard to find.
Broadway.com has tickets starting at $79 for the rear part of the Mezzanine. The seats in the front part and the Orchestra are sold out weeks ahead (this is a common issue, shared by everyone on the Secondary market).
Ticket Sales issues the warning that the event/date is popular. Still, they sell tickets starting at $114.
The cheapest ticket at Seat Geek costs around $76.61 plus some additional fees. Again, they have limited availability.
Broadway Pass has tickets starting at $79, but without the service fees, asked by most of the others. Again, you need to act quickly in order to buy at a normal price.
