Moulin Rouge! The Musical




Moulin Rouge, Baz Luhrmann's revolutionary film is now a live show.  WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!


How wonderful life is now you're in the world.


Moulin Rouge is one the best musical films EVER, and I am so excited they have turned it into a live show. This really proves that the "show must go on."


According to the website:

Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular spectacular... 

Welcome to Moulin Rouge! The Musical 

Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza. A theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom and — above all — LOVE, Moulin Rouge! is more than a musical; it is a state of mind. 

How wonderful life is...at the Moulin Rouge.



It's still in previews, but it seems the critics LOVE IT:

Variety:
Yes they can-can — they can transform Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 absinthe-tinged fantasia “Moulin Rouge!” into a socko stage spectacular. The story’s been strengthened in this splashy production, while expectations of cinema-inspired visual splendor are met and even exceeded. As for its song score, you can forget about your so-called jukebox shows and their dozen or so standards shoved into a narrative. With 70-odd pop smashes — from Piaf to Perry, from “Lady Marmalade” to Lady Gaga — baked into its dialogue and DNA, “Moulin Rouge!” has a battery that never runs down. Future prospects on Broadway and beyond, following this brief premiere engagement resuscitating Boston’s venerable Emerson Colonial Theater, seem as rosy-red as the luscious crimson wash poured over the whole business.


The New York Times:
Its pieces zoom through the air like candy-colored shrapnel, whizzing by before the memory can tag them and making the blandly familiar sound enticingly exotic.

By the end of this smart, shameless and extravagantly entertaining production, adapted from Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 movie, you’ll think you’ve heard fragments of every Top 40 song of lust and longing that has been whispered, screamed or crooned into your ear during the past several decades. You may even believe that once upon a time you loved them all.


Oh Moulin Rouge, "how I love you....until my dying day"  "Come what may"...I need to see this show.  ❤️❤️❤️
