Enjoy a Saturday night at The Glenwood with live music, cabaret dancers, magic, comedy and other impressive performances. This dinner theater is inspired by the Hollywood masterpiece, The Moulin Rouge. For those of you unfamiliar with the film or the place, the Moulin Rouge is a cabaret within a well known district of Paris, France. At the turn of the 20thcentury it was made famous by the creation of can-can dance as well as the seductive courtesans who performed there. You can still visit the historic site today (although the original burned in 1915), as it operates as a tourist attraction and dance hall.
So, don your finest early 20thCentury apparel, that represents the romance of Montmartre and the pizazz of cabaret and come out for a night of fun!
