Painting the town red.

See it if you like musicals with plenty of songs--mostly of the pop variety--tons of glitz, and heart.

Don't see it if sentimentalized storylines turn you off, and pop tunes performed amid spectacular settings won't win you over, either. Read more

★★★★ "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."
