If you have the opportunity, the Sparkling Diamond Seats are nothing short of extraordinary to be fully immersed in the incredible sights and sounds of the Moulin Rouge! As big fans of the movie, my wife and I flew in from Dallas just to see the show. We were not disappointed. The Emerson theatre, Moulin Rouge set, talented cast and new music (while preserving the best of the songs from the movie), made this a delightful evening. The Duke could have been a little creepier, but the magic between Sateen and Christian was amazing. From our seats, we could see the actual tears rolling down their cheeks and their quivering lips. So powerful! This show is a must see if you want a non stop fun night that expertly weaves a love story through a humorous and entertaining string of jokes, songs and dancing! Can't wait to see this on Broadway!

Being one of those who had watched the movie multiple times, I wasn't sure what to expect of this production. I had nothing to worry about! They did an amazing job of recreating it! This was, hands down, one of the best broadway productions I have ever had the joy of watching! The incorporated newer music into it while keeping the heart of the movie in tact. The sets were fantastic! The actors were incredible! From Christian and Sateen all the way down to the dancers of the Moulin Rouge were simply amazing! Non-stop action and singing and dancing that had me smiling, laughing, and, of course, crying. I left there wanting to come back and see it again. Whether or not you're a fan of the movie, you will absolutely love this show! I know this because one of my daughters had never seen the movie and she loved it. See this show!!

Very excited to see this show, I am a huge fan of the movie. As you walk in the theater looks as if you just walked into the movie of Moulin Rouge. As it starts it captures your attention (not to give anything away) then bam you are right into the fun, song and dancing. I loved it, loved the new and old songs, very beautiful, very tallented cast, costume and art all well done. The only thing that did bother me was Christian and Satine. I did not feel a love connection. Both are extremely tallented but did not feel what you have felt in the movie, the love the passion between them two. I don’t believe they selected the right performer for Satine, she was amazingly tallented but don’t think it was the right part for her, I wanted the chemistry between these two but I just didn’t feel it. Even so I would highly recommend this show it was truly amizing up to the very end. You won’t regret going to see this work of art.

I cannot stop thinking about this show. I am in Boston for just 3 short days and I would (had I the funds) see it again! The actors were flawless, the music was incredible, and their changes to the storyline were amazing. I read several disappointed reviews about the musical changes or differences in the plot- it's 2018! The movie was released 17 years ago. The creative choices that were made for the musical were amazing and brought a more modern perspective to the show. I am truly obsessed with this performance and cannot wait to own a CD of the music so I can sing along 24/7.

5.0 star rating Laura from Cleveland, ohio


Came from Ohio to see the show without seeing the movie and was absolutely amazed. The sets were intricate but not overwhelming (scene changes were seamless), the story and music were great, the cast and choreography were mind blowing! Any opening night jitters were unseen (other than a buckle and hat). Judging by the constant applause and standing ovations everyone in the theatre was as impressed. Cannot wait to head to New York for the Broadway debut!

5.0 star rating Jessi Champion from Boston, Massachusetts


Come what may is the theme song my husband and I live by so we had very high expectations for this show. This cast and crew blew them out of the water. Such high energy and amazing talent on stage and the theater was perfect for it...small and engaging! Not for kids, and the best seats are actually around the 4th-5th row.
