Teatro ZinZanni was originally launched in Seattle by Norm Langill and One Reel in 1998. Originally intended for a short run during the holiday season, the initial production enjoyed 14-sold out months leading to a permanent show in Seattle and expansion into San Francisco in 2000. After 14 successful years, One Reel launched Teatro ZinZanni as an independent arts organization in 2011.
Since it’s opening, Teatro ZinZanni has been delighting audiences with its swirling stream of performance, music and comedy presented in the elegance and intimate comfort of an antique Belgian spiegeltent or mirror tent. Best known for regular evening three-hour performances that blend cirque, comedy and cabaret served up with a five-course gourmet meal, Teatro ZinZanni performances now include monthly Matinees, late night Cabaret Lunatique experiences, and Camp ZinZanni, a summer education program for kids ages 5 to 16. In 2011, Teatro Zinzanni is an independent non-profit arts organization.
