    Moulin Rouge with Mary Littlejohn

    This week we chat with Mary Littlejohn about which of life's truths can be gleaned from the screen-spectacular turned stage-spectacular - Moulin Rouge!

    Diane Snyder of The Telegraph praised the scenic design, choreography, and costume and wrote that "Moulin Rouge! may not have the depth of some of Broadway’s great musicals... [but] it’s fun, tuneful and entertaining, and that’s exactly what we need right now." Mashable's Erin Strecker said that "This is the best of what a jukebox musical can be; a thrilling burst of color and chorus and nostalgia and bold reimagining." Adam Feldman leaned positive as he called the show "an extravagant Broadway megamix," commenting that it "looks and feels expensive."

Why?

Anyone want to tell me why they’re speaking about a show of which at least 2 of them have not seen or remember? As a fan of the show, I was annoyed at the mindless banter concerning this amazing show. Not knowing how to pronounce “Schuyler”, not knowing what “Guns and Ships” was about, not knowing that Lin was in the show, as well as other details was pretty disappointing too. You should have watched the bootleg or listened to the soundtrack!! My suggestion is that you all see it first THEN speak on it......I give this one star just for the synopsis. Everything else was pretty worthless, and I don’t recommend it.

For anyone who lives for Musicals

If I had friends, they would all sound like the people on this podcast. This is everything I wanted in a musical podcast and more! [insert humble request to guest host from the US]
I learn more from this show than I do from the actual musicals they’re discussing! Perfect for road trips, less perfect for background noise since I want to pay attention. Perfect for practicing my Australian accent, less perfect for the FOMO I experience because I’m thousands of miles away.
KEEP DOING EVERYTHING

Good but occasionally annoying

I’ve enjoyed some of the episodes, but when one of the hosts annoying sings a line from the songs they’re discussing, I roll my eyes and want to turn it off. If you’re going to sing, do that. There’s no need to sing in a mocking tone.
