I’ve never been to Teatro ZinZanni. What can I expect?
From the moment you step through the doors into our Belgian Spiegeltent you will be transported into another world where performers break free from the confines of the stage and the action unfolds all around you. No two performances are alike as the wall between artist and audience disappears. A few guests may be invited to participate, many will enjoy table-side interaction with artists, and everyone will share in being a part of a one-of-a-kind celebratory event creating a memorable evening for all. If you want to learn more, contact our box office at 312.488.0900.
When should I arrive and how long is the show?
The beginning of the show is marked by the striking up of the band and world of Teatro ZinZanni starts to emerge all around you. Once the lights dim, the show is approximately 2 1/2 hours. We encourage our guests to arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of the show. The bar and boutique will be open for pre-show cocktails and shopping. Late seating is accommodated at the discretion of the maî·tre d’.
What is the dress code?
We ask our guests not to wear t-shirts, shorts, or flip-flops. Otherwise, we invite you to throw on whatever garb makes you feel the fanciest! A night with Teatro Zinzanni is a perfect occasion to have a night on the town with flair. Our ZinZanni Boutique features a variety of accessories from top hats and tiaras to boas, jewelry, and beyond.
May I bring my children?
Due to the nature of the show, we do not allow children under the age of 8. It is a three-hour evening filled with sophisticated humor, sensuality and innuendo. There is no special ticket price or menu for children.
May I take pictures?
For the safety of our performers, personal photography is prohibited inside the tent. Professional photographic services are available on the night of the show. There is ample space in the lobby for your photos and selfies. Don’t forget to tag us on social media! #teatrozinzanni

What if I want guaranteed floor seating or front row seating?
Our venue has a unique design and seating is done in the round. While we don’t have a traditional “front row”, tickets in the “center ring” section will get you right in on the action in the center of the tent. Although, even in the back of the room, you’re still very much a part of the action happening all around you.
How many people at a table?
Our venue has tables of various sizes with the largest tables seating 6 guests. If we must break up a larger party, we will seat all guests in that party at adjacent tables. We cannot add additional seats to existing tables. We can accommodate any size group within the capacity of the venue.
