Moulin Rouge continues to entertain and entrance audiences as its first-ever tour makes its way across North America
Based on the cult-hit film of the same name, Moulin Rouge: The Musical is making its way across North America as it enjoys its first-ever tour! The colorful production is laden with pop hits, and its impressive book and music direction keeps these coming as a seamless and surreal explosion of iconic bands and music artists that stretches from P!nk and Katy Perry to Shirely Bassey. Of course, the original song 'Come What May' is included, with an entire, glorious scene devoted just to this beautiful ballade.
It's then no surprise that audiences across the US who've already had the production pay a visit to their towns, are raving about this genre-bending musical. In fact the Hollywood Reporter wrote that on opening night, after intermission when the curtain rose and the second act started, "the applause lasted for four minutes."! What a way to welcome the cast back on stage!
Here are some other opinions from Moulin Rouge audience members:
"I cannot begin to describe how much I loved this production." - Jace A. from Chicago, Illinois
" It was an energetic, and lively few hours of entertainment. Absolutely 100%" - Barbara Rowland from Highlander Ranch, Co
"So much to say I don't know where to start. I have seen a lot of theater and this musical is by far the BEST show ever!" - Elena P from Los Angeles, California
"A great evening of entertainment. The cast is excellent with song and energy." - Bob Banz from Chicago, Illinois
Of course, not everyone is a fan... Veronica S. wrote "I also don't understand why you have to throw jokes all around. Sometimes you want to embrace the deepness of emotions."... it seems maybe she's missed the brief of this highly-energetic, irreverently entertaining musical. Perhaps she should have gone to see something by Tennessee Williams instead!
For those that do want to laugh, sing-along, and be entertained by a riot of glitz, glam and theatrical prowess, don't miss out when Moulin Rouge comes to you! Or else see what other Broadway musicals are headed your way -> BROWSE MUSICALS
