3. Moulin Rouge! The Musical
Also in Boston this summer, at the gorgeous, newly restored Emerson, is the world premiere adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's hit film. Broadway and TV's Aaron Tveit (Graceland, Brain Dead) stars as the dreamy writer Christian and Tony winner Karen Olivo (In the Heights, Hamilton) takes on the role of tragic prostitute Satine in this star-crossed love story. Expect all the hits and heartbreak from the movie, plus a few other jukebox surprises.

Where to see it: Emerson Colonial Theatre, Boston; July 10 - August 19, 2018; get tickets here
