German audiences will be able to see the spectacular, spectacular Red Mill! Next year. Red Mill! Musical comedy will have its first non-English-speaking production at the Musical Dome in Cologne, Germany, starting in the fall of 2022.
“We are more than delighted,” Maik Klokow, CEO and producer of Mehr-BB Entertainment, said in a statement. “It’s a privilege to bring this exceptional production to Cologne and we can’t wait to see the city become a musical metropolis again. “
German production of Red Mill! Musical comedy will be the fifth to open after Broadway. As previously announced, the Tony-winning musical features productions in London and Melbourne in addition to a nationwide tour.
Red Mill! Musical comedy is based on Baz Luhrmann’s successful 2001 film of the same name. It arrived on Broadway after an out-of-town tour at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theater. The show features a book by John Logan and some 20 hit pop music from the past 50 years. Alex Timbers is directing the production, which features choreography by Sonya Tayeh.
Red Mill! Musical comedy opened on Broadway on July 25, 2019 and won 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
