The feathers, diamonds and French whimsy of “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” are headed to Denver’s Buell Theatre June 9 to 26 and locals can snag tickets for as little as $45 in a digital lottery, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts announced this week.
To enter the lottery, you must have a Lucky Seat account and enter to win tickets for specific performances. The deadline for entries to shows June 9-12 must be submitted by June 7 at 10:30 a.m.; the deadline for shows June 14-19 must be submitted by June 10 at 10:30 a.m.; and the deadline for shows June 21-26 must be submitted by June 17 at 10:30 a.m.
Winners have the opportunity to buy two tickets for $45 each. Otherwise, tickets range from $35 to $125 for each performance and are limited in availability.
When it comes through the Mile High City, “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” will bring with it local actor Andrés Quintero, who graduated from Rangeview High School in Aurora in 2006. Quintero was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and raised in Denver. He’s been cast on several TV shows, including Comedy Central’s “The Other Two” and “Madam Secretary” on CBS, as well as in musicals, such as “In the Heights” and “Rent.”
Quintero plays Baby Doll, a drag queen, in the “Moulin Rouge!” ensemble.
“I grew up in Denver and have deep roots in that city. I am so excited for audiences at The Buell Theatre to experience this spectacular show,” Quintero said in a statement. “I’m extremely proud to be a part of such a diverse company and welcome all communities to get your tickets if you have not already.”
