Seating

What is the seating arrangement?
You and your guests will be seated restaurant-style at tables and booths in our intimate antique tent imported from Belgium.  The action of the show takes place all around the circular venue creating an immersive experience and is visible from all vantage points in the room.  We offer general admission and premium reserved seating.  Seating will be pre-assigned before you arrive for the performance.  Guests seated in the General Admission Seating section will usually share a table with at least one other party.

Please see our seating map here  - please note there may be minor variations in table locations for some shows.

May I ask to sit with another party?
If you would like to be seated with another party who made reservations for the show separately from your party, simply make the request with our Box Office.

What is the dress code?
Abandon your inhibitions and celebrate the evening with festive dress.  From boas to bangles, feel free to deck yourself out in whatever dressy garb suits your style, but please no t-shirts, shorts or sneakers.  Our ZinZanni Boutique features a variety of accessories ranging from top hats and tiaras to feathered masks, boas, jewelry, and beyond.

May I bring my children?
There is no specific age requirement to attend the show; however, it is a three hour evening filled with sophisticated humor, sensuality and innuendo.  It is up to the discretion of the parent or guardian to determine if the show is appropriate for their children.  Please note, there is no special ticket price or menu for children and our venue.  Babes in arms will not be comfortable.  For information on children activities, classes and camps, please visit Teatro ZinZanni’s education division, the ZinZanni Institute for Circus Arts.

May I bring my camera?
For the safety of our performers, personal photography is prohibited in the tent and in the boutique.  Photographic services are available on the night of the show.  Contact the Merchandise Department at (206) 802-0018 if you have any questions or would like to coordinate services in advance.
