About Moulin Rouge the Musical

Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular… Welcome to Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza. A theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom and—above all—LOVE, Moulin Rouge! is more than a musical; it is a state of mind.


About Wicked the Musical

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

About the Matinee Theatre Group

The Matinee Theatre Group was founded more than 60 years ago by some incredible women seeking to help make a difference for the youth served by Bonnie Brae. Funds raised from the program continue to provide vital support for Bonnie Brae, helping more than 285 historically underserved youth and their families each year. Your participation in this program directly impacts the young women and men we serve. Many of them come to us abused, abandoned, and neglected, and leave with the strength and confidence to pursue their dreams. If you’d like to see the impact of our work first-hand, we invite you to see our beautiful 100 – acre campus and take a tour. We believe you will be inspired.

The Matinee Theatre Group subscription includes your orchestra seat ticket (s), round-trip bus transportation to and from the following locations: Lantern Hill Senior Living Community, Basking Ridge Country Club, Canoe Brook Country Club and Essex Fells Country Club, and a tax-deductible donation to Bonnie Brae and our youth. All buses pick up between 10:00 am and 10:15 am, arriving in the city around 12:00pm (members make their own plans for lunch prior to attending the show). We are more than happy to add additional buses, at additional pick-up locations if we have a minimum of 25 members from a specific location. If you’d like your community or neighborhood to be added to our list please reach out to Helen Rimarenko.
