Moulin Rouge! The Musical description

Moulin Rouge the Musical – A magical jukebox musical!

The cabaret venue Moulin Rouge in Paris has a long history of sauciness and fun, home to the infamous Can-Can dance. The 2001 movie of the same name transformed the fun into a dazzling musical with romance at its heart. It was a smash hit. Now it's on stage, fresh from Broadway, and it's set to delight West End audiences with colour, action, light, dance, song and - of course – true love. It's brilliant.

The original Moulin Rouge, AKA 'Red Mill' burned to the ground in 1915, having been founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, owners of the infamous Paris Olympia. The venue was on the doorstep of Montmartre in Paris, in the district of Pigalle, famed for the scarlet windmill on its roof. It was the birthplace of the modern Can-Can, originally danced by the prostitutes who worked out of the site. It soon became a form of entertainment in its own right and inspired cabarets to pop up all over Europe. These days the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction providing dance entertainment to visitors, but examine the décor and you'll see it still reflects the romance of fin de siècle France.

The plot? The scene is Paris in 1899. A young Englishman falls for the lovely Satine, a singer at the Moulin Rouge. But the manager of the venue has promised Satine to a wealthy Duke, as a reward for paying the costs of his latest stage production. The lovers have to meet in secret, but as Satine's wedding to the Duke approaches she hides a fatal secret from both men.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a jukebox musical. The book is by John Logan and the show's based on the 2001 movie, which was directed by Baz Luhrmann, written by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce. The musical premiered in summer 2018 in Boston, USA, and in 2019 it transferred to Broadway. Now it's over here.

The characters include Arabia, The Duke, Christian, Nini, Satine, La Chocolat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Babydoll, Santiago, Harold Zidler and more, and the show tunes are absolutely gorgeous. You'll find yourself swaying in your seat to delights like Welcome to the Moulin Rouge, Bohemian Idea, Satine's Entrance, Dancing with the 'Duke', In the Elephant and many more, all containing wonderful references to modern chart stoppers that you'll recognise in an instant, and can sing along to.

If you're one of the few musical fans who hasn't seen the 2001 film yet, shelve that idea for now and come see the stage musical first. It will blow your mind in the most wonderful way and you'll leave feeling buoyed up, inspired and charmed by the classic tale of two young lovers whose very different worlds collide. Christian is a penniless writer from England who adores the ideals of the Bohemians. Satine is a dancer who dreams of becoming a famous actress. Together they make sparks fly. It's a dazzler... come and see it!

Who is this show for?
Innuendo and mature themes make this splendid musical most suited to people aged 14+.

Funny, touching, creative, outstanding vocals!

We knew nothing about the show before booking tickets other than that we wanted to see a musical in the West End and we had heard the movie was good. This show left us cheering, clapping, stomping our feet and singing along. We happily joined in a standing ovation!

Felt massively over charged! Why was Christian American to start with? In the film he’s British! Generally the casting was terrible! It felt more like a joke than a proper love story which is what it is supposed to be no? The music hahahahaha SHOCKINGLY BAD! How did we have Beyoncé, Adele, lady gaga, sia, Rihanna? What on earth was going on! And then Roxanne to be sung by Christian when that’s not the case in the story! So bad it was unreal!

Absolutely brilliant and professionally done as one would expect of a west end show. Until you're seated one does forget how unbelievably cramped the seating is, no good if you've a bad back or overly tall. Unfortunately last nights show was completely interrupted by someone who obviously felt unwell. Cast left the stage and lights came on. We were asked to be patient, that was all. When the person finally left, walking out, we wondered if it could have been handled much more discreetly. Then the show carried on as if nothing had happened, very professionally on stage.

Bohemian spectacular extravaganza

This was a must see show for myself and my wife .. and it didn’t fail to please and enthral. The mood and ambience is set from the moment you enter the auditorium .. filling you with eager anticipation of what was to come! The start to the show was a musical dance spectacular .. breathtaking and high energy .. before the commencement of the love story between Satine and Christian began .. which was a bit of an anti-climax after such an energetic introduction! There were a few times when the show fell a little flat .. one or two of Christian’s solo numbers .. but that’s just my opinion .. it didn’t change the fact that this is the best show in town .. a Bohemian spectacular extravaganza of the highest order!
