Ahhh opening week! The tent is alive from dawn (read 8:00AM) to dusk (midnight-ish). The tantalizing scents wafting from the kitchen, the cacophony of scenery being loaded in and taken out of the tent, band rehearsals, last minute costume fittings…
It is all oddly satisfying.
Each new show is like a fresh start. A crisp sheet of paper. Only for us that paper is glittery card stock. In a gilded frame.
Enough about paper, let’s get on with the show already!
On the Air
For this show we are taking you back to the golden age of radio! The tent transforms into radio station KTZ, the only station in Seattle broadcasting a nostalgic variety of dazzling music, acrobatic cirque, and hilarious comedy. It’s radio like you’ve never seen!
And the cast:
Original Teatro ZinZanni cast member and side-splitting comedian Kevin Kent returns to the spiegeltent
Singing sensation Anki Albertsson, makes her triumphant second appearance in the tent
Hilarious aerial duoThe Collins Brothers (not actually brothers) are certain to please and delight
Les Petits Freres, everyone’s favorite acrobatic trio return with even more shenanigans
Joel Salom, the juggling juggernaut from Australia
Juliana Rambaldi will dazzle and blind you (not really) with her throat of gold
and the ever-flexible and always radiant Vita Radionova
