Forbidden Photo Shoot

Hail Caesar! Forbidden Oasis opens September 12!  The tent is aflutter with excitement that can only come from a new show…

And camps!

One muggy morning last week the marketing team loaded into the ZinZanni van (yes it is a clown car) with Ben and Rachel (of Duo Madrona), Stephanie Seymour (of the Costume Shop), and a plethora of costumes, headdresses, and wings;  then headed down to Michael Doucett’s studio.  Ms Vita joined us that afternoon in full goddess regalia, talons and all!

Summary: A spectacular photo shoot.

These are not the actual photos, but more of a behind-the-scenes look at what we are cooking up for our upcoming show.

What do you think?

Gangsters of Love is the Cat’s Whiskers

Gangsters of Love is aces!  It’s hitting on all sixes!  It’s Jake!  However you prefer to say it, Gangsters of Love is a hit.  Why even the highfalutin inky fingers (or the press for those of you who ain’t on the trolley) have gone bananas for our newest show.  Here’s the skinny:

“Equal parts entertainment and experience, “Gangsters” is a hilarious testament to an age when liquor and love trumped all – and a captivating trip to the past you won’t want to miss. “

“It was the perfect combination of great comedy and thrills.”

“The dinner theatre production of “Gangsters in Love” is a 1930’s mad cap production that features singers, acrobats, circus tricks and a lot of laughs.”

Get your tuchus down to the tent for the Real McCoy and see what all the hullabaloo is about. Don’t forget about our moxie matinees featuring an all-new kid-friendly menu at a wallet-friendly price.

See the show before it 23-skidoos!

Gangsters Loot the Tent

The story begins long before you get to the tent. Check out this teaser for Gangsters of Love playing at Teatro ZinZanni in Seattle through September 30.

It is finally here!  Gangsters of Love opened June 14th to a full house of adoring fans and freshly minted converts. For this spectacular spectacular, the tent sends you back in time to 1932. America is deep in the depression. Bread lines, unemployment and homelessness are rife. Prohibition, which made the sale and distribution of liquor illegal, has been the law of the land for 13 years. Why on earth did we send you back here, you might be asking yourself?

Oh right, because it is also the age of jazz, Art Deco, and glamor! This show has everything, and we mean everything: Three aerial acts, gangsters, tap dancing, King Kong, Chef Caesar, gambling, socks, cement boots, moxie, jazz, Francine Reed, and so much more. Gangsters of Love features comedian Frank Ferrante, aerialist Dreya Weber, blues vocal powerhouse Francine Reed, Duo Madrona (Ben Wendel and Rachel Nehmer) on trapeze, funnyman Joe DePaul, comic acrobat Andrea Conway Doba, vaudevillian Wayne Doba and juggler rola bola extraordinaire Bernard Hazen. This much talent in one tent is probably illegal, so don’t tell the fuzz!

Chef Erik Carlson has simply outdone himself with his newest five-course extravaganza of flavor. Think we are being biased? Check out the menu! Seriously, he is serving Blue Nose Bass en Parchment with lemon, Mascarpone and fresh herbs, served with garlic saffron rice, broccolini almandine and carrots. We dream in cheesecake! You will not be disappointed.
