Set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris at the turn of the century, a world of indulgent beauty and unparalleled extravagance, of bohemians and aristocrats, of boulevardiers and mademoiselles, "Moulin Rouge! The Musical" tells the fictional story of an ambitious, lovesick writer, Christian, and a dazzling, entrancing chanteuse, Satine. Their lives collide at the Moulin Rouge with its many characters including the host, Harold Zidler, the brilliant and starving artist Toulouse-Lautrec, the greatest tango dancer - and gigolo - in all of Paris, Santiago, the tempting Nini, and The Duke of Monroth, the wealthy and entitled patron of the club who thinks he can buy anything he wants, including love. Directed by Tony nominee Alex Timbers, with a book by Tony winner John Logan.
See it if U love shows like a Vegas Spectacle merged with the insipidness of Rock of Ages, prefer style over substance & overpaying 4 pretty garbage.
Don't see it if U love classic or contemporary Broadway as an artform or believe this must be worth the hype due to ticket demand similar 2 Hamilton [NOT!].
See it if You love the conceit of using POP songs in a musical, and you like flamboyant dance numbers. Costumes and Set Design are flashy, for sure.
Don't see it if If you are looking for anything SMART, don't see this show. It panders to the lowest in every way.
See it if If loud jukebox musicals are your thing, this is for you. The singing and dancing were terrific--the material was awful.
Don't see it if You want to see skilled performers put their talents to good use.
See it if If you like to listen to several catchy Top 40 tunes, or appreciate 1st rate dance choreography, and if you haven’t seen the original movie
Don't see it if You are expecting to feel the magic between Satine and Christian - it’s way less romantic. Kickass dance? yes! Dance extravaganza? No.
