Totally Frenched Out

Just in case anyone was wondering how the Moulin Rouge was - I enjoyed it, but I don't think I would've paid 99€ to see it.

It started off pretty slow, and I found the mens' costumes to be incredibly cheesy (think white, sequined pantsuits). Speaking of which- I had no clue there were men involved. And why were they always fully clothed??

They picked up the pace after a while though, and I enjoyed several of the acts. I was also surprised to discover that there were non-dance acts - such as an acrobatic act and a ventriloquist - and that some of the numbers involved singing. It almost seemed more like a comedie-musicale than a cabaret.

This should give you a pretty good idea of the show though (warning - there are some topless women in the video):

Did you see the girl dancer who came to the K&K picnic a couple of years ago? Her name is Lynette.

The music alone has me sold.

The Moulin Rouge is more geared towards tourists. If you want a real envelope-pushing Parisian cabaret, check out Crazy Horse. The great Dita von Teese has performed there several times.
