Don’t expect a nightclub setting for this dinner and show in Seattle. It’s inside a “spiegeltent.” To house Teatro ZinZanni, two beautiful antique theaters were imported from Belgium and built in Redmond, WA, about sixteen miles east of Seattle. The European cabaret tents, also known as spiegeltents or mirror tents, were created in the early 1900s by renowned craftsman Willem Klessens. These warm, intimate circular theatres hosted dances, wine tastings, cabarets and celebrations in Europe for almost a century. There are currently about 100 of them in existence, and Seattle’s Moulin Rouge is among the oldest in the Belgian collection.
This production of "Love, Chaos & Dinner" combines improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music and dance. The 3-hour performance has been described as “the hottest ticket in town.” The fast-paced action happens above, around and even alongside the audience as they dine on a gourmet meal.
