Original cast member Robyn Hurder will play her final performance of Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Sunday, February 20. Hurder has been with the production since the show's early development in 2017. She earned her first Tony Award nomination for creating the role of Nini, one of the badass chicks from the Moulin Rouge.

Based on Baz Luhrmann's 2001 film about doomed love among bohemians in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris, Moulin Rouge! manages to squeeze a remarkable amount of pop hits from the last 60 years into one extravagant stage musical. According to our review, "If you go in expecting a spectacle, you will not be disappointed."
