LanguageMoulin Rouge Musical contains some harsh language that is used throughout the show. Lookout words include sh*t, b*st*rd, and d*mn

Mature Content: Other than the language, the other big lookout for parents in this musical is the sexual content.

The main character has sexual relations with two different men, and while the sexual content isn’t shown, it is implied throughout. There is a character who has a deadly disease and is shown dying in the musical. Characters consume alcoholic beverages.

It is appropriate material for ages 13 and older. The suggestion of parental guidance or an adult guardian is highly recommended for small children under 13 years old. This rating is based on the opinion of the author.

Overall Thoughts

Moulin Rouge The Musical is a visual masterpiece. Lavish sets transport you to the decadent world of the Moulin Rouge, and the costumes are a kaleidoscope of feathers, sequins, and rhinestones. The choreography is energetic and inventive, seamlessly blending can-can with contemporary dance styles.

The show relies heavily on popular songs, which can feel anachronistic at times. While cleverly mashed up, it might not be for everyone who prefers original scores. The cast boasts incredible vocal talent, belting out a score of pop hits cleverly woven into the narrative.

The story itself is fairly simple, and some find the emotional moments overshadowed by the spectacle. If you’re looking for a night of pure entertainment, Moulin Rouge delivers. It’s a high-octane experience that will leave you smiling.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a crowd-pleaser, perfect for those who want to be swept away by a visually stunning and entertaining production. However, if you prioritize a strong plot or dislike jukebox musicals, it might not be your cup of tea.
