Teatro ZinZanni Seattle has enjoyed two years in beautiful Woodinville, Washington. We have produced 4 new shows in our antique Belgian spiegeltent, set up a production headquarters, worked on openings in Chicago and San Francisco, remodeled a pub, and welcomed artists, patrons, and partners to the wooded site in the heart of Washington’s wine country. We are grateful to have been warmly welcomed by the community.
After many months without show operations and an uncertain outlook on the future of safe public gathering, it is with great sadness that Teatro ZinZanni Seattle must announce that we will leave this location by the end of September. We will not be able to proceed with the hoped-for new site construction. Our goal is to conserve resources until it is possible to erect a tent and offer shows again. We have closed the Wheelhouse restaurant and will relocate our offices in coming weeks. We are grateful to our landlord for support over the past two years and for assistance with an orderly transition.
Teatro ZinZanni Chicago, which launched in Spring 2019, remains temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but we are excited to work with our partners to reopen in the beautiful Spiegeltent ZaZaou as soon as health conditions allow. Our long-term plans for development of the Teatro ZinZanni San Francisco site continue. The timing of reopening Teatro ZinZanni, and all performing arts institutions will depend on our ability as a society to come together and address the challenges of the pandemic.
We will continue to post updates on this site. We are very grateful to all supporters and members of the Teatro ZinZanni family around the world.
