See it if you like the campiness of the movie and are ready for even more CAMP. Camp taken up to 11. It's A LOT... and I LIVE FOR IT!

Don't see it if you can't deal with camp. Almost every line of dialogue is a lyric from a famous song and that can be a lot for audiences. It's PURE CAMP!

★★★★ "Red alert! Red alert! If you're the kind of person who frets that jukebox musicals are taking over Broadway, prepare to tilt at the windmill that is the gorgeous, gaudy, spectacularly overstuffed 'Moulin Rouge! The Musical.' Directed with opulent showmanship by Alex Timbers, this adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's 2001 movie may be costume jewelry, but its shine is dazzling."

New Yorker
July 29th, 2019

"A Millennial Reboot of Chekhov, and 'Moulin Rouge!' on Broadway. Halley Feiffer translates 'Three Sisters' into Internet-speak, and Baz Luhrmann’s glitzy movie comes into its own onstage."

The Hollywood Reporter
July 25th, 2019

"Baz Luhrmann's playfully postmodern riff on the Hollywood movie musical set in fin de siècle Paris gets amped up for the stage, with Karen Olivo and Aaron Tveit stepping into roles played onscreen by Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor."

"‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical!’ Review: Pop Opera Excess. A stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 camp extravaganza is as opulent as it is empty."
