Indulgent, Raunchy

See it if you want to see a musical filled with energy and some frenetic dancing, in a visually impressive setting.

Don't see it if you’re looking for something with a stellar storyline- the story is so banal as to be non-existent- or if you’re looking for amazing singing Read more

Time Out London
January 21st, 2022

...director Alex Timbers’s dementedly maximalist ‘remix’ of Baz Luhrmann’s smash 2001 film is pure sensory overload...for all its tongue-in-cheek chutzpah, when the music stops you’re not left with much.

The London Evening Standard

Alex Timbers’ production excels when it seduces the eye, not the mind or the heart: Derek McLane’s sets and Catherine Zuber’s costumes are essays in polychromatic fabulousness.

The whole experience is awash with sure-footed dance: sensuous, fleet and duly delivering those signature can-can moves in a riot of petticoat lifting and high-kicking. Yet there’s little disguising the slender narrative arc...

It’s kitsch, joyful hedonism writ large, bursting with sparklers, streamers and technicolour vitality – and powered by a cast who know only too well that you should perform every show as though it could be your last. Irresistible entertainment.

The Stage (UK)

It’s a shell of a show, all noise and no signal, instantly crumbling into its own lack of substance.

The Guardian (UK)
January 20th, 2022

There is a lot to love: with a wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are spectacular.
