We are thinking of seeing the show at the Moulin Rough. Has anyone seen it, and is it worth seeing?
Quite a few years ago (approx 2003), dinner and show were included as the Tauck farewell dinner. Large table, primarily groups, food was just ok. While an interesting experience, the entertainment reminded me of a Vegas show. To be frank, I did not like it.
My niece went this summer. She’s in her 30’s . She said they packed the people in. She didn’t enjoy it
Notorious tourist trap.
I've never heard any good reviews of a Moulin Rouge event. They're just selling the name.
The way I see it... if the alternative is to stay at the hotel room, GO!
If you picture the show as part of the Paris experience , GO! Is it a tourist trap, maybe, it all depends on the eye of the critic. That it reminds people of Vegas.. well, of course it is a Cabaret show... there are many around the world , but only one Moulin Rouge & it's part of the Parisien culture... it's iconic and something to see at least once, then you can decide if it was worth it or not, remember not everyone has the same taste....
I saw it many years ago, I did enjoy it ; I personally try to see as much as possible during my trips
It is up to you!
I think you would enjoy wandering the Monmartre neighborhood instead.
I agree with Gourmet Gal. We always wander Montmartre when we are in Paris.
