Best Theater Company

Teatro ZinZanni

Moulin Rouge meets Las Vegas: Teatro ZinZanni is as fabulous as it is zany. From its headquarters, an antique theater tent imported from Belgium and set up right across the street from Seattle Center, the company presents a three-hour evening show featuring performances by international cabaret, cirque, and comedy acts as well as a five-course feast designed by Tom Douglas. Guests are highly encouraged to dress up, and feather boas and tiaras are as common as high heels. But underneath all the lavishness, Teatro ZinZanni is an independent, nonprofit arts organization that, though creative methods of community outreach like clown camp and tumbling classes, keeps the art of circus alive.
