The dinner theater institution is back—temporarily—at Marymoor Park.

Aerial performer Elena Gatilova returns to Teatro ZinZanni this month, along with a cast of the show’s vets.

Leave it to Teatro ZinZanni to leave us hanging. After losing its home on Lower Queen Anne in March, the much-loved dinner theater has relocated its antique Belgian spiegeltent (mirror tent) to Redmond’s Marymoor Park for a six-month run of its classic production, Love, Chaos and Dinner.

On the menu is the same winning combo of cabaret, cirque and comedy, plus the usual multicourse dinner. But this time with James Beard Award-winning chef Jason Wilson—who has been busy shaking up Bellevue's dining scene and getting into the wine country resort game—at the culinary helm.

You’ll have your work cut out for you just trying to dine while taking in the spectacle, so don’t worry too much about the plot. If tradition holds, you’ll leave with all your senses sated, thanks to a cast of Teatro veterans, like yodeling dominatrix Manuela Horn, trapeze artists Duo Madrona and singer, dancer and comedienne Ariana Savalas as Madame ZinZanni.
