Here’s what we think: Review by Headout

Moulin Rouge!, the musical that blends the seductive performances of the Parisian courtesans with an epic tale of romance and a touch of dramatic flair, showcases the best of what the stage has to offer: catchy earworms, mesmerizing routines, breathtaking costumes, captivating performances, and a pure dedication to the art of entertaining. Based on the 2001 Baz Luhrmann film of the same name, Moulin Rouge! has dazzled audiences and critics alike, setting aside any doubts early skeptics may have had about the show’s ability to live up to its predecessor.

4/5

“The whole experience is awash with sure-footed dance: sensuous, fleet and duly delivering those signature can-can moves in a riot of petticoat lifting and high-kicking."

4/5

"From the second you enter you know what to expect: a musical with a heart of gold that seeks to entertain and overwhelm in equal measure. It is so over the top, it's irresistible.

4/5

“It’s kitsch, joyful hedonism writ large, bursting with sparklers, streamers and technicolour vitality – and powered by a cast who know only too well that you should perform every show as though it could be your last. Irresistible entertainment."

Kate Wyver,

4/5

"There is a lot to love: with a wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are spectacular."

4/5

"Timbers is not afraid to use every tool in his directing arsenal with this self-aware, but not self-conscious, amalgamation of vintage and modern, classic and contemporary. Every creative team member is clearly working overtime to deliver excellence and opulence."

Player Kings

Experience
Kevin Millard
The performances were memorable-Sir Ian McKellen was outstanding. It was such a treat to be able to see someone of his talent performing on stage. Although I was sitting in the back row at the top section, the theater and performances still felt close and intimate. What a fun night!

The Mousetrap

Experience
Peter Stephens
Everything. Loved the play. Great fan of Agatha Christie and the format. The fact that the play had been going for so long gave it a special aura It was something that was an institution and when we were planning our trip a must see. Actors were brilliant and played to the audience the theatre was a major element of the experience in creating the atmosphere for the play. Agatha Christie, you know what you are going to get, as she works to a tried and tested formula, but you are always surprised by the ending

Experience

Headout were amazing- already gave us a cheaper rate for the show, + another £7.91 discount! The show itself was very funny, my bro and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Only downside was that you could hear the trains when inside the theatre

Back to the Future

Experience
Isabella Mayer
Oh my god, words can't describe how amazing this musical was. I enjoyed every minute of it. I am a huge Back to the future fan and when I heard about this musical, I had to go and see it. The cast and music were phenomenal and did such an amazing job. It is definitely a musical that I would see again. I was blown away at how they did the show, especially at the end when Doc and Marty came flying over the audience in their car and did a whole 360° right over our heads! 10/10 performance from everyone! They sure must have been exhausted by the end of the night, due to go how hard they were performing, but it sure was an amazing musical.
