Moulin Rouge! The Musical & Friends Present: Make it Rain Rally – A Benefit For The Australian Bushfires
As the world watches the devastating wildfires unfold in Australia, everyone at Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway is heartbroken. The production’s roots in Australia run deep: the film was made in Australia, brought to life by the great Australian artists Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin, and Nicole Kidman. The musical was brought to the stage by Australian-based producers Carmen Pavlovic, Gerry Ryan and their production company, Global Creatures. The Broadway musical features Australian actors in the cast.
The bohemian values of truth, beauty, freedom, and — above all — love, have inspired Moulin Rouge! The Musical to rally together to support the relief efforts currently underway down under.
On Monday, January 27th, Moulin Rouge! The Musical and Friends will present the “Make it Rain Rally” a benefit for the Australian bushfires at (Le) Poisson Rouge (LPR). An initiative by Australian cast members Karli Dinardo and Reed Luplau, this special event is directed by Mr. Luplau and will feature performances by singer-songwriter Ben Folds; the band Postmodern Jukebox with Morgan James; cast members of Moulin Rouge! The Musical along with performers from other Broadway shows including Frozen, Hamilton and Tootsie; drag personality Alexis Michelle; and more to be announced. The event is produced by Mr. Luplau and Hayley Isaacson. #MakeItRainRally
All proceeds from the “Make it Rain Rally” will be donated to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund and WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue.
Venue: (Le) Poisson Rouge
