In case you haven’t heard, the curtain is back up at the hottest shows on Broadway. Three cast members of the Moulin Rouge! The Musical share their experiences—and why this Tony Award-winning show is a must-see!
Pushing Past the Pandemic One of the first Broadways shows to go dark because of COVID-19 in 2020, performers went from eight shows a week to zero. According to ensemble member, Samuel Joshua Cahn-Temes, it wasn’t easy. “My mind and body loved the break,” Samuel says. “But I missed dancing that extraordinary choreography, singing those pop songs, and sharing the stage with some of the most talented artists in the business night after night.” And for newcomer Tilly Evans-Kruger who was only a month into her contract, it meant pressing pause on her Broadway debut, which she finally achieved October 13, 2021—the first day she had the opportunity to perform. “I missed watching everyone’s brilliance,” says Tilly. “I’m new to this industry, so I don’t take for granted being able to watch these incredible artists at the top of their game.”
