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

This was a fabulous show! It was hilarious and the circus style activities were amazing and beautiful. Loved the singing as well. The food was great. The tomato/cheese appetizer was fresh and delicious. The soup and salad were good, but nothing too exciting. I was very impressed that the beef was cooked perfectly and so tender. The sides were good, but I couldn't have much of the sweet potato au gratin (it was too sweet and rich for me). I wasn't crazy about dessert, but I think that was more of a personal preference since my friend wolfed down his dessert (and mine) in no time. It didn't matter though, I was so stuffed halfway through the entree, I didn't even need dessert. It's a lot of food.
Here's some tips that I wish I had known beforehand:
Don't even bother bringing a camera because you cannot take pictures anywhere.
Seats are pre-assigned, so you don't have to get there right when the doors open. They start seating 30 minutes before the show starts, so really...you could get there then and be fine.
There's also plenty of street parking nearby. Meters are free after 6 pm. I got there at 5:30, so only had to pay 75 cents for parking. (Score!)
There is a dress code: no shorts, t-shirts, or sneakers. Most people dress up, but I did see a few guys in jeans. So, just work what you have, and don't sweat it too much.
If you don't have fun accessories, you can shop in the waiting area before the show. They have a bunch of boas (in every color imagineable), tiaras and sparkly items. They were decently priced too.
The night of the show, you'll be charged an additional $10.00 per person as a service charge, and I believe it all has to go on 1 card (good to know if you go in a group). All drinks are additional (including pop).
If you end up in a booth and have a choice of where to sit, then choose the side that gives you the best view of the entrance. We chose the side that gave us the best view of the stage, and ended up turning around most of the night. Not a lot happens on the stage, most of it is near the entrance or the center of the tent.
Oh, and I don't consider this kid friendly. The humor is racy and very adult friendly! :)

Very Whacko! Like a circus on acid with dinner and live theatre!
Dollar for dollar, this is the best entertainment value on the west coast.
The food is the best and performances are not to be found anywhere else.
