THE ARTISTRY IS AMAZING

The performers beyond outstanding. The music just makes you smile so wide, while chair dancing, from start to finish. Music so well mixed, and fun crafty humor. The dancing well, beyond any show I've ever seen. Never saw a more entertaining uplifting musical in my life. The costumes are stunning, exciting, and the movement a visual art. The stage production, extraordinarily impressive. I always repeat myself, but this show is a Must See. Bravo to the company, I'll be smiling for a long long time, cuz I CAN CAN CAN! Never did this before I went twice! BRAVO!

MOULIN ROUGE

I just saw Moulin Rouge at the Buell Theater on Sunday, and it was fabulous! A professional troop, where the performer's, their singing, dancing, and music were all outstanding! It was an energetic, and lively few hours of entertainment. Absolutely 💯 % recommend this show.

MOULIN ROUGE

One of the best musicals we have seen in years. Love all the pop songs interwoven in the script. Funny, great sets, actors are excellent!

A LOT OF FUN, GORGEOUS SETS AND COSTUMES, SINGING SPOTTY

We were thoroughly entertained - and was a good venue for our 6th grader too, arguably slightly less risqué than the movie. The sets are perfect, dazzling, exquisite! Same for costumes. I wish the stars had been as enthralling. Sateen was flat and her voice strange enough I wondered if she’d been sick - maybe so. Christian was an understudy, hung in there and did well enough not to distract. Ziegler and Toulouse were wonderful and absorbing, couldn’t separate the actors from their characters, which is how I like it!

A MUSICAL MADE FOR TIK TOK OR INSTAGRAM

Lighting, check. Set, check. Music, check (assuming you can live with 15 to 30 seconds of any one tune). Depth....meh. To be fair, a handful of songs are fully peformed (I would hate to see the licensing cost for this show). The best description on a reveiw I've seen is that the show is "pretty close to karaoke". Doesn't make it bad, just not sure it makes it Broadway. It has its fair share of laughs and the crowd did really seem to enjoy it, including clapping and singing along at times. Will you have fun...probably. Will you remember this as one of the great shows you've seen...probably not, at least I didn't.

MOSTLY MEH

I found the show to be more disappointing than I'd like to say, but that's not due to the cast and crew. Set was lovely and lighting was great. The cast did a good job. I felt this show shouldnt just be called 'Moulin Rouge' but rather some pop-culture rendition of it. They cut a lot of the old songs out or sang a few bars of it and then threw in something current instead. As someone who absolutely loves the movie, this ruined it for me. If you go in expecting something more true to the film version, as far as music goes, you will be disappointed.

SADLY LACKING

I was lucky enough to see Moulin Rouge in the West End a week ago. As it was so good, I did not hesitate to book again while visiting Chicago. I can only say I’m heart broken. Although the set and costumes is just as brilliant, sadly, the performance and sound quality is not. The atmosphere in the theatre was dire… no one danced or sang along which was stark contrast to the electric ‘buzz’ to the UK. So disappointing
