With the book Lean In making a splash in 2013, the topic of women and success is just as fresh and current as it was in the 1980s, when Caryl Churchill wrote Top Girls in response to Margaret Thatcher's ambitious rise to power in the UK. Called "the best British play ever from a woman dramatist" by The Guardian, Top Girls follows Marlene, a ruthlessly ambitious career woman, who has seized every opportunity to make it to the top. In the play's famous opening scene, she celebrates her big promotion at a surreal dinner party whose guests are famous women from history and myth. After this celebratory moment, Top Girls changes course to show the cost of Marlene's ambitions. When a young relative shows up unannounced at her workplace, Marlene must examine what the next generations of women will gain (or lose) from the choices she made in her rush to the top. Learn More

Ok so first let me say this was not my first time going more like my 5th and will not be my last for sure... The show itself was amazing as usual from start to finish got to see Caesar who is great and if you can go before he leaves you must. Not a bad seat in the house at all despite some other reviews and great for any special occasion like ours my daughter's sweet 16 or if you have friends from out of town you want to show a good time.. There was 7 of us and even though we had to buy the tickets in two groups that was fine since we saved almost $500.00 using goldstar and still were able to sit together all it took was a call to Teatro directly and they were more then happier to do that for us!!! This show is worth every penny the food is great wish there were bigger portions only cause it was so good.. I would tell anyone who wants to have blast and isn't looking for a cheap evening you must go at least once... You might just end up hooked like me. I have seen five different shows and cast and it hasn't gotten old for me at all.. if anything I have grown to become a bigger fan. This was my first gold star event and everything couldn't have been easier... Basically its my opinion that Teatro Zinzanni is totally worth the full price ticket rate but if you can grab some on gold star and get the discounted ones even better...

Teatro ZinZanni was created by Pacific Northwest non-profit arts and events producer One Reel in 1998 and enjoyed a sold-out 14 month run in Seattle before bringing its antique “spiegeltent” to San Francisco in 2000, now located at its permanent home on Pier 29 along The City’s Embarcadero.
Teatro ZinZanni breaks new artistic territory with this intoxicating blend of interactive theater, spectacle, fine arts and fine dining, put together under the artistic direction of One Reel's Norman Langill.
The ever changing cast at Teatro ZinZanni features world-class practitioners of some of the oldest and most time honored traditions in entertainment. It is truly an extraordinary ensemble, of a caliber unlikely seen anywhere else in the world. They know you will enjoy the distinctive magic that is created by these incredible talents with fine cuisine and lively music presented in an intimate “jewel box” venue.
The evening includes a lavish 5-course gourmet dinner, which includes a choice of three magnificent entrees, which include a vegetarian and a vegan selection.
