Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni presents debut of Tommy Tune’s ‘Bonsoir Liliane!’by Sue Frause, Seattle Traveler Examiner Writer
If you’re a Teatro ZinZanni fan, there’s even more reason to smile and cheer. The Seattle-based “theater in a spiegeltent” is bringing a new show to town. Bonsoir Liliane! is making its debut on September 1, 2011 and runs through January 2012. Directed by Broadway legend and nine-time Tony Award winner Tommy Tune, the new show stars French dancer and Tony Award winning star Liliane Montevecchi. The show is a reunion for the director and dancer, as they collaborated in the hit Broadway show Nine (they both won Tony Awards) and Grand Hotel.
Taking the audience on a journey through Liliane’s memories and fantasies in Moscow, Paris and beyond is Kevin Kent as the comic conductor of the Red Swan Express. The Seattle spiegeltent will be transformed to showcase new dance numbers featuring former Pacific Northwest Ballet member Ariana Lallone, along with dancer Tobias Larsson. Also appearing in the show are contortionist Vita Radionova and acrobats Les Petis Frefres. Music by the trio Diva and the Dixies will recreate the most memorable chapters of Liliane’s life and career.
