Transcript for Behind the scenes of Broadway’s ‘Moulin Rouge’
We have a behind-the-scenes look at one of the hottest tickets on Broadway. "Moulin rouge," the musical. Ginger went backstage to see how the magic is made. But this is more than a nightclub. The moulin rouge is a state of mind. As soon as you open these doors to the theater, the revolutionary film comes to life. It is a remix extravaganza. This is "Moulin rouge: The musical." So for those that haven't seen the film or haven't seen it in a long time, the story is about the moulin rouge needing money. And she mistakenly falls in love with a penniless writer. Instead of the duke. The duke who she doesn't love. Right. Well, we all need him for the money. No matter your sin, you're welcome here. Reporter: Danny Berstein plays the empresario. He keeps everything running. He keeps everything going. It's a lot of fun. It really is. Reporter: So now let's get to business because it is a remix. Right. It is peppered with hot music. Lots of pop music. A lot of it. That's right. Favorite songs that you sing? I love the pitch songs. It gets real silly because it's the one moment the group of us are all on stage together, and so many things happen on stage every night that thankfully the audience doesn't really see. If I were to have that one dream that has been recurring also, it's me coming down on a trapeze. It's her. We can work that out for you. Any training? Anything you had to go through? There was a bit of circus training to do that. I'm going to step in because she's being a little modest. She did a lot of circus training and they did that outside of rehearsal time and made it happen. I should be on a trapeze right now actually. An undeniable star of the show? The set. From the elephant to the windmill synonymous with splendor and romance. And the choreography, there's plenty of that. We'll do the cancan. Hit it. Everybody cancan Shake it. Every single night, it just takes off like a jet, and then goes for 2 1/2 hours, and then all of a sudden it's over and you go, wow. What the heck was that? It just happened. It just happened. That was an amazing experience I'll never forget and that's what we're doing eight times a Ginger can do it all.
