The Reviews for MOULIN ROUGE! are In…

Moulin Rouge! is open, and while not all the critics are sold on the jukebox-y, mashup-y, remix-y score, they're all in love with the spectacular design and stellar performances.

Set in the center of a mid-western arena, where guns adorn the walls and chili bubbles on the stage, the production…
