Welcome To The Moulin Rouge! The Brand New Musical WOWS The Critics.
News Desk August 1st, 2019
Now playing at the Al Hirschfeld Theater.
After what seems like an age of waiting, Baz Luhrmann's iconic movie comes to spectacular life on the Broadway stage! Opening at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on July 25, what did the critics think of Moulin Rouge! The Musical? The overall impression is that Moulin Rouge! was an instant hit, as to be expected, with some of New York's most prestigious critics praising the dazzling tuner.
Ben Brantley from The New York Times was full of admiration for the musical adaptation, saying, "...for its plump, sleek two-and-a-half hours of stage time, 'Moulin Rouge' - which stars a knockout Karen Olivo, with Aaron Tveit and Danny Burnstein doing their best Broadway work to date - has the febrile energy you may associate with the wilder parties of your youth, when gaudy nights seemed to stretch into infinity."
Deadline was in awe of Dereck McLane's set design, saying, "In the miracle-working hands of scenic designer Dereck McLane, Broadway's Al Hirschfeld Theatre is transformed into a red velvet heart-shaped fever dream". Rolling Stone called Moulin Rouge a "spectacle" and Time Out labeled the musical "An extravagant Broadway Megamix".
With Variety saying "The luscious 2001 movie hit makes it successfully to the stage - elephant and all - in this gorgeously flashy version." it's safe to say that Moulin Rouge! will be lighting up Broadway for a long time yet.
