Boston’s Colonial Theatre will reopen with a world-premiere of ‘Moulin Rouge’

Yesterday, The Boston Globe reported here that the long dormant Colonial Theater now owned by Emerson College will reopen in June 2018 with a world-premiere musical stage adaptation of the film “Moulin Rouge”, which could go on to Broadway following its run here in Boston.

The Colonial, which closed back in October 2015, has had millions of dollars spent renovating the beautifully historic 117-year old theater; with construction expected to be done by the spring. The international producer, Ambassador Theatre Group from London entered into a long-term lease with Emerson to operate the Colonial Theatre so Bostonians can expect a full line up of excellent shows following Moulin Rouge.
