Ahead of the ‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’ opening in Perth, the incredible Simon Burke joined Clairsy & Lisa for a chat about the stage show ‘It’s the movie, on steroids’, how Play School was key for his acting skills and why on earth things got so heated between two elderly theatregoers that it ended in an actual fight… during a matinee.

Hit PLAY to listen in… 

‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’ opens at Crown Theatre on Sunday, February 26.
