It’s a spectacular spectacular with all the confetti you could dream of, superb performances, a gorgeously talented diverse cast, an out-of-this-world stunning set, and the kind of theatrical appearance the world dreams of. Moulin Rouge is one of the most memorable films of its time, and this pre-Broadway production in Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre is an immense treat for its generation. It’s bound to be an award-winning hit you won’t want to miss. Colossal passion all around and heart wrenching emotions that’ll leave you thinking through the night — poignant, exquisitely captivating, and profoundly enduring. It’s worth every penny and more.
