Fans watching on screen were enthralled by the love story of a writer and a showgirl before Moulin Rouge! opened on Broadway. Moulin Rouge! is based on the 2001 movie written and directed by Baz Luhrmann. The movie musical starred Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, and Jim Broadbent, along with John Leguizamo and Richard Roxburgh. The movie was an international success, garnering unending praise and multiple awards. It received eight nominations at the 74th Academy Awards – winning two, including Best Costume Design and Best Production Design. The movie was a commercial success, grossing over triple its initial budget. To this day, critics debate that Moulin Rouge! is one of the best movies of all time – and definitely the best movie of the 2000s. Now, it has been turned into a Broadway production which gives fans a refreshing yet still-bedazzled experience. .
Moulin Rouge! the musical is a stage show unlike any other. As USA Today describes it, “Imagine Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” but as a steamy Spanish tango. Now imagine that’s been mashed up with Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army,” and vigorously performed by a group of hot-blooded bohemians in early 1900s Paris.”
The director and choreographer keep the stage buzzing with lively movement, and the designers crank up the color and glitz to the highest possible level. Additionally, you’ll be exposed to a diverse selection of pop music that will have you singing along the entire time. The Broadway production of Moulin Rouge! the Musical plays up to its moniker as the “spectacular spectacular”.
“One of the liveliest shows on Broadway!” – Deadline
“both intoxicating and exhausting in its unrelenting visual and sonic assault.” – Hollywood Reporter
“a musical so visually gorgeous and vibrantly performed.” – BroadwayWorld.com
The musical follows the same musical score used for the Moulin Rouge! movie, which includes songs by Elton John, Madonna, and David Bowie. Some changes have been added though. The Broadway production still includes several of the most well-known songs from the film, such as “Lady Marmalade,” but many more have been added. Moulin Rouge! the Musical has 70 songs in all, many of which are only heard in brief excerpts. Numerous of these songs are chart-toppers from the years following the debut of the Moulin Rouge! movie, giving the production a modern edge. Many well-known tracks, such as John’s “Your Song,” The Police’s “Roxanne,” and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” will still be instantly recognizable to the audience.
Entertainment Weekly had a solid good time at Moulin Rouge! the musical. The writer had nothing but good things to say, including a brief excerpt of what the show had to offer. Here’s what was written: “A lot of the film version of Moulin Rouge relies on the audience buying into Satine and Christian being so wildly in love, and believing it when she comes to choose her tragic fate. In this stage show, however, the love story can’t always compete with its splashy surroundings. We can see Christian’s angst and Satine’s pain, but flashy dance numbers and karaoke-favorite tunes envelop 2 hours and 35 minutes of the show, making the emotional moments take a back seat to the artistry on display. And yet, much of it still works.”
