Mike and Heather Morelli were in the house celebrating their third wedding anniversary and had no idea they would be helping Teatro ZinZanni celebrate a major milestone moment.
Cast members pulled them from the audience, crowned them, draped them with boas and beauty-queen sashes and introduced them as the 1,000,000th and 1,000,001st guests since we opened our fabulous spiegeltent here in Seattle in 1998. Simultaneously a similar celebration was underway in our spiegeltent on the Embarcadero in San Francisco.
The Morellis will join us again for our official 10th Anniversary Celebration on April 1, 2009 and will stay in the Grand Suite at the Marqueen Hotel, ride to the show in style with Blackstone Limousine, and will get to celebrate at TZ with two of their closest friends.
Congratulations to the Morellis!
