For those who have been going to the iconic big-top in Seattle Lower Queen Anne will find the same glamorous, velvet ambiance at the new Marymoor Park location, as Teatro ZinZanni sets up shop for its original “Love, Chaos, and Dinner,” now playing through April 2018. For all the first timers, you can expect a fun night with no less than the wonderful experience the company has been putting out in the past.
Celebrating cabaret, circus, and comedy, gifted artists take to the intimate stage and dazzle the theatre with dancing, singing, and acting. Performances feature acrobatics and comedic acts less than a few feet from your seat.
The storyline circles around a restaurant preparing to wow a food critic, with love and chaos in between. The audience gets to enjoy a delightful four-course meal while being entertained by a well-choreographed team.
From the elegant suspended hoop by Elena Gatilova, the gravity-defying pole act by Domitil Aillot, to the sexy trapeze piece by Duo Madrona (Ben Wendel and Rachel Nemer), these signature aerial performances are truly unique and jaw-droppingly beautiful.
Interactions between crews and the audience are most priced in this dinning experience. “The Maestro” Voronin and surely keep you entertained throughout. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself can’t stop laughing when director/performer Joe De Paul is on stage.
The dinner performance is held at the antique cabaret tent imported from Belgium accompany with an amazing meal crafted by the award-winning chef Jason Wilson. The menu is exclusively prepared for Teatro ZinZanni and works well with the playfulness of the show. The main course, Braised Short Ribs with Cabernet Demi-Glace, is especially delicious.
This is the show you are going to wow your out-of-town guests in this holiday season. With pricing starts at $99, don’t look elsewhere for a 3-hour of immersive theatrical dinning experience.
