Review from Giggling Girls

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,...continued

Review from SweatTheBody

This was a very entertaining evening. A little silly at times, but there were some very skillful performers. I was surprised at the quality of food preparation for the amount of people at the event.

Review from Janet C

This was a great night. We went for Father's Day, and it was memorable and fun for everyone. The show is the focus here, and the performances were all excellent caliber. It is not as theatrical or grand as Cirque Du Soleil, but seeing everything...continued

Description

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.

About Voronin:

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.
