Until
Feb 19

Opens Wednesday, November 16

Teatro ZinZanni takes the concept of “dinner theater” and turns it on its head. From the moment you cross the festive threshold, you’re treated more like a guest than an audience member, encouraged to don one of the sparkly accessories available in the gift shop, for example, to join in all the fun. The evening unfolds at a leisurely pace, with food and frolicking alternating throughout the night. A welcoming song. Some tasty appetizers. A little comedy. A zesty salad. A heartstring-tugging torch number. A hearty main course. An aerial display by an athletic performer? Very likely. Audience participation? Possibly. It’s the kind of show where the unexpected is—expected.

This latest iteration is appropriately titled Coming Home. After losing its original lower Queen Anne location to development, spending some time in the wilds of Woodinville, and shutting down entirely during the pandemic, Teatro ZinZanni returns to within the Seattle city limits at Sodo Park, offering a cornucopia of delights. The cast includes ZinZanni veteran Kevin Kent, overseeing a bill that features the likes of Chinese pole artist Domitil Aillot, hula hoop star Vita Radionova, and “yodeling dominatrix” Manuela Horn, with more dazzling names to be unveiled this month. The culinary experience will be provided by award-winning caterers Herban Feast, headed by Chef Jason Munger, dishing up a fabulous four-course meal (tip: if you can afford it, opt for the wine pairing). The show’s currently running through February 19, giving you plenty of opportunities to find out what it’s like to get ZinZazzled.
