The drama is set in approximately the turn of the 20th century during a time known as La Belle Époque in Paris, the bohemian paradise of France in Montmartre. The story centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just arrived in Paris in pursuit of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a mesmerizing courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the notorious Moulin Rouge nightclub.
“At the end of the 19th century, when our hopeless romantic lead walks through Montmartre for the first time, all he can see is ‘dazzling chaos’. That’s what this raucous new production of Moulin Rouge! exudes in spades,” the Guardian writes. There is a lot to like about the wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are amazing.”
The Musical for New York Theatre Guide, writes Moulin Rouge is globally respected as a show that has it all. "It's not just 70 songs that are rolled into one show, but also a canvas of spectacle and emotion that isn't just a floorshow but left me floored with its sublime artistry."
