An adult theatre experience unlike any other is coming to Southern California – Teatro ZinZanni! An exciting blend of European cabaret, circus arts, fine dining, comedy, and vaudeville, Teatro ZinZanni is often described as a racy meeting of Moulin Rouge and Cirque du Soleil. You will be dazzled, you will be titillated, and you will have a heckuva lot of fun. This all new Teatro ZinZanni show is entitled Love, Chaos, & Dinner – so let your mind run wild!
But what exactly IS Teatro ZinZanni? Well, all the way back in 1992, Teatro ZinZanni founder and artistic director, Norman Langill, imagined a bold, European cabaret inspired show with brash touches of American comedy – a Theatre of the Absurd on steroids. He brought that show to Seattle in 1998 with the help of a wide array of actors, vaudevillians, acrobats, musicians, contortionists, clowns and more and the result is an astounding alternate universe where anything can happen and nothing is as expected. Mr. Langill himself calls Teatro ZinZanni “the nightclub of your dreams.”
Held in a uniquely magical theatre environment, a century old Belgian spiegeltent, the raucous show unfolds above, around, and alongside the 285 guests. The “Love” portion of the Teatro ZinZanni show is all about, well, love! Romance and passion inform each element with aerialists, trapeze artists, drag queens, and even clowns performing and relaying an overwhelming feeling of happiness and amour. And who doesn’t need a little Chaos in his or her life? Teatro ZinZanni brings on the disorder with mischief making clowns, contortionists, and more. But the show means to set ALL of your senses spinning, so throughout Teatro ZinZanni you will enjoy a five course gourmet dinner and libations courtesy of Chef Joachim Splichal’s Patina Catering. Performers in their own right, the chefs live for the show as well. “As chefs, we love show time in the kitchen – literally what we live for. There is no greater show on Earth than Teatro ZinZanni. It’s a match made on tight ropes, gas burners, trapeze swings, wild salmon and arias. Delicious!” says Tom Douglas (Teatro ZinZanni Executive Chef). But heck, why am I trying to describe Teatro ZinZanni when you should come out and experience the Love, Chaos, & Dinner for yourself!
The three hour Teatro ZinZanni show will burst into the Segerstrom Center for the Arts from 10/24/12 – 12/31/12 (just in time for some mischievous Halloween fun!). Tickets start at $122.
