The Port Commission voted unanimously, 5–0, at its regular meeting yesterday to endorse a term sheet—basically, the amount and conditions of a lease—for Teatro ZinZanni, the circus dinner theater hoping to return to the waterfront. From here, the Board of Supervisors has to endorse it.

There has been widespread support to build the theater, along with a partner hotel and privately run public park, on Broadway at the Embarcadero. However, supporters and developers were surprised by a recent report from SF Planning that questioned several of the plan’s integral elements, including a gazebo containing the theater’s historic spiegeltent.
