Copypaste from website[edit]

User (Sloritz) added the following paragraphs to Teatro ZinZanni:

"Teatro ZinZanni is a big night out unlike any other, a three-hour whirlwind of international cirque, comedy, and cabaret artists all served up with a five-course feast designed by celebrated Northwest chef Tom Douglas.

"An ever-evolving and constantly changing production, Teatro ZinZanni combines improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music, dance, cirque and sensuality into a dizzying and colorful new form that is never quite the same from evening to evening. The fast-paced action of the show unfolds above, around and even alongside the audience as they dine on a gourmet meal. Teatro ZinZanni is guaranteed to dazzle.

"The original concept for ZinZanni was sparked by a visit to Spain. In 1992, Norm Langill strolled into a weather-beaten spiegeltent on a quiet Barcelona street and fell in love. Inside that tent it seemed dreams and reality converged and anything was possible. Inspired by the great cabarets of Europe, spiked with a fresh sense of American comedy, and steeped in absurdity, the first Teatro ZinZanni took shape in Langill's mind.

"When Artistic Director/Founder/CEO, Norm Langill, and his producing team at One Reel launched the world premiere of Teatro ZinZanni in Seattle in October 1998, their hope was that "Love, Chaos, & Dinner" with its unique blend of European cabaret, Vaudeville, improv, and pop music (including local artist Ann Wilson of Heart as the Chanteuse), would merrily run through the holiday season of 1998. The show was a smash success and ran for 14 sold-out months!

"New Year's Eve 1999 found ZinZanni dimming its lights for the last time. After a run so successful the far off The New York Times heralded ZinZanni as "Seattle's hottest ticket," the show was forced to move from its perch on Mercer St in Seattle's Theatre District to make way for incoming construction. So, as the new millennium dawned, ZinZanni packed it all up and struck out for the Barbary Coast.

"With help from new Bay Area partners, renowned restaurateur Stanley Morris and Stars Restaurants, ZinZanni created its first permanent show on San Francisco's historic waterfront. The show debuted on Pier 29 on The Embarcadero in March of 2000 to rave reviews. The Chronicle hailed it as "heroic," the Mercury News dubbed it "like the Kit Kat Klub on Acid," and the Oakland Tribune said simply, "terrific".

"As the show progressed in San Francisco, it began to draw from that city's rich talent pool and legends like Joan Baez and Maria Muldaur joined the cast. Other great vocalists joined the cast over time, including Liliane Montevecchi, Sally Kellerman, and Duffy Bishop. ZinZanni continued to showcase the finest circus artists in the world and became a coveted slot on the cirque circuit for the world's premier artists and acrobats.

"In April 2002, ZinZanni returned to Seattle with a permanent show in the historic Belltown district. Partnered with an exciting restaurant partner, Tom Douglas Restaurants, and with a second speigeltent on loan from the Klessen family, ZinZanni debuted "Dinner & Dreams" to great success. When the show hit the landmark of its 500th Performance, the Post-Intellegencer dubbed it One of the most spectacular—and spectacularly successful—show biz phenomena ever to hit Seattle."

Teatro Zinzanni's original site[edit]

I remember when TZ first started. The big, white tents were set up on Mercer St/Roy St on Lower Queen Anne. They later moved into the old Frederick's Cadillac space in Belltown on 6th/Battery. I edited the TZ copy to reflect this, but was told it was a "senseless" change. On the website it says "on Mercer St, in the Theater District", which is on Queen Anne. Any thoughts?

You had linked it to Queen Anne, which didn't make sense. However, after seeing your note here, I searched the Seattle, Washington article and found a link to the Seattle neighborhoods article.
That article in turn links the article about the Queen Anne, Seattle, Washington neighborhood, which is probably what you meant. If you can find a reliable source which confirms it as the original location, that will improve the Teatro ZinZanni article. — Athaenara 22:39, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Postscript: Or did you mean the Lower Queen Anne, Seattle, Washington neighborhood? — Athaenara 22:41, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I did mean Lower Queen Anne, which is still Queen Anne not Belltown. I didn't check the link, I just happened across the article and saw the error and changed it. I'll change it to the correct link. Ciel411 22:55, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
