An experience unlike any other, Teatro ZinZanni is a whirlwind
of international cirque, comedy and cabaret served with a multi-course feast.
At Teatro ZinZanni–the finest Fine Diner in the Chicago Loop–the chef Madame Z (Chicago’s own Bethany Thomas) and head waiter Doily (Kevin Kent) have assembled a hardworking restaurant crew of unemployed circus artists from around the world, including Sasha (Elena Gatilova–Ukraine), Shaquille (Michael Evolution–Netherlands), Rafael (Noel Aguilar–Mexico), Marjo (Marjorie Nantel–Quebec) and Samson and Vivi (Chicago’s trapeze stars Duo Rose–Sylvia Friedman and Samuel Sion).
As the team scrambles to serve up food and fun to the brave and curious diners in the room, their old friend comes roaring up on his motorcycle. Phénix (Michael Cunio–New York) is fresh off a gig as a security guard for someone claiming to be Cleopatra. He looks like he has followed a dream of his own and reinvented himself. Well, well, well! What wishes will everyone at the Fine Diner seek to fulfill tonight?
While enjoying a multi-course feast of food and beverage from the professional chefs and hot-shot servers of Rocking Good Foods, guests are invited to remember their own wishes and dreams in this latest Teatro ZinZanni Chicago production.
“You’ve got a great way to liven up your weekend. There’s no better choice…”

Come up to the 14th floor, leave your coat and worries at the door, and float through the beautiful lobby where you can enjoy a drink, find a tiara or fedora, and take a photo or chat with friends. Soon you will be seated at your reserved table inside the magical Spiegeltent ZaZou.
The orchestra starts up and your evening begins in the company of our outrageous chef, an equal opportunity romantic with a lust for life. You, your grandma, or your brother just might be the one who captures his heart. Who is working with the Chef to prepare and deliver your multi-course feast? What other visitors will appear? From what world? Who will find love? Or a new empire? Who will sing? Who will fly? Who will dance? Are you ready to laugh?
The Spiegeltent ZaZou, a Belgian mirror tent filled with historic touches, is located on the 14th floor of the newly-opened Cambria Hotel in the Theatre District at 32 W. Randolph St, located right next door to the James M. Nederlander Theatre. Once the doors open to Teatro ZinZanni’s venue, guests will be directed by greeters to the elevators from the Cambria Hotel lobby.
