Moulin Rouge on Broadway

Lights, camera, action! Moulin Rouge takes over the cities with flashing lights and carefully choreographed dance moves. I was fortunate enough to see the show in Portland, OR, and man – it did not disappoint one bit. I honestly left without words. The singing and the storyline left me in awe.

It’s the turn of the twentieth century in no other than the bohemian mecca of Montmartre in Paris, France! It’s hard not to fall in love with the city lights and the fashion on the streets. That’s precisely what happened to young American writer Christian. In search of inspiration, he also stumbled upon love. A walking diamond, Satine mistakes Christian for a wealthy man, and someone ends up receiving special attention at the five-star nightclub “Moulin Rouge.”

Having to hide their romance due to Satine’s job, it soon turns into a secret love affair. The Moulin Rouge starts to go downhill and is threatened to be shut down unless a deal breaks through. Satine is promised a life with a wealthy man through work by her boss. Fancy beautiful dresses, a huge house, and, most importantly, security all in exchange for saving the Moulin Rouge, but what about her secret love for Christian?

Come find out, and if you’re in New York, you have to stop by the AL Hirschfeld Theatre and watch the show. I promise it’s worth it! Tickets start at $81, and it would make a fantastic and fun date night. 302 West 45th Street, New York, NY!
