Teatro ZinZanni is bringing back the golden age of radio with On the Air, their latest dinner show. Featuring hilarious comedy, singing, acrobatic acts and more, this is like no radio show you've ever heard -- or rather, seen. The production follows thrilling tales of espionage from a legendary radio serial star, takes a break with an operatic jingle singer and even has an encounter with an extraterrestrial with a taste for the finer things. This comic spectacular is part circus, part cabaret and unlike anything you've ever seen. Learn More

My daughter and I loved the venue, the costumes, the food and our server Anne. However, the storyline was disturbing and misogynistic with the objectification of a female puppet being carted around by male characters trying to get their awkward, grasping needs met.
The quality of entertainment overall was marginal on the lesser end would be the Maestro and the bald comic strongman making Jewish jokes.
Performers that make the entertainment worthwhile are the female puppet, the blues singer and the lady in the gossamer scarf that does an amazing balance ballet towards the end of the show.
While the vocal operatic finale is impressive, it seems to come out of nowhere in the story; my daughter was perplexed and unreceptive.
We will probably see the show a second time before we leave Seattle based on the costumes, the venue, the food.
My daughter is fascinated with the female puppet performer. My hope is to spark an engaging, explorative conversation on gender roles in our culture and how women are encouraged to behave less than authentically in order to have a central role in the show, so to speak.
Our table mates said the three previous shows had better storylines with a higher level of performance. I hope Teatro ZinZanni in not slipping into mediocrity.
Step right up and step back in time as an 18th century circus troupe takes over Teatro ZinZanni’s spiegeltent. The Maestro and his menagerie of strong men, equilibrists, and trapeze artists have come to collect an unusual puppet and end up staying awhile. Magic, merriment and mayhem abound as Teatro ZinZanni presents Maestro’s Menagerie, a mesmerizing mélange of trickery and illusion guaranteed to beguile the beholder.
With French Canadian static trapeze artists Ssens Duo in their Seattle debut, Maestro's Menagerie features the return of Ukrainian illusionist Voronin as the Maestro and blues songbird Francine Reed. Also featuring the sensuous Russian contortionist Svetlana, the Human Cartoon American clown Peter Pitofsky, Russian gentleman juggler Sergiy Krutikov, the acrobatic comic duo the Collins Brothers, opera diva Juliana Rambaldi, and the luminous equilibrist Elena Boradina.
Known throughout the world as "The Maestro," Ukrainian illusionist Voronin has been described as the essence of Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati. After graduating from the Kiev Children's Studio and Kiev State Circus School, Voronin formed his own theater company, The Theatre of Caliostro. In 1988, he swept first place in magic competitions in Germany, Moscow and Austria. In 1999, he won the Siegfried and Roy prize for Master Magician. When not starring in Teatro ZinZanni, Voronin is one of the most sought-after stars of the European cabaret circuit. He returns to Seattle fresh from his most recent European tour to collaborate on this all-new production of A Suitcase Named Desire. An original cast member, Voronin appeared in the very first production of Teatro ZinZanni in 1998. This is his 21st engagement with Teatro ZinZanni.
