This party features oodles of gratuitously sexy performances, luchadores clashing in a battle royale, fantastic cerveza, and dancing! This spectacle of spectacular is hosted by a trifecta of tremendous talent: the Mexican Elvis El Vez (Robert Lopez), the tallest caballero this side of the border “Big Mike” Geier, and Mexican blonde bombshell Christine Deaver. See these three lo-co hosts as you’ve never seen them before: late at night and uncensored!
Late night shows are crazy popular and lines to enter can get long close to show time. If you are attending, be muy inteligente and arrive here right before 11 PM. Don’t forget your ID, you must be 21 or older to witness the ESPECTACULAR!
At long last they are here! We have the official ¡Caliente! live photos. Catch a glimpse into our spicy new show with these saucy shots taken by Michael Doucett.
Also, check out this most excellent review from Drama in the Hood, written by the lovely Emma Chambers. This review has one of the best summations for the finale: “… if you have ever wanted to see a very large man dressed up as the Statue of Liberty, surrounded by slices of cake while servers wearing cabaret-style mini dresses parade about with flags from a range of countries—not just the US and Mexico—now is your chance.” Guilty!
We sum up these photos and that review with one word: ¡Caliente!
“¡Caliente! stars Christine Deaver and Robert Lopez who play the brother/sister duo, Tres and Cinco who work in the kitchen. It appears that the tent is being sold and the kitchen crew is the last to know of this news. It’s up to the pair, with the help of the rest of the crew, to literally save the show. Each member begins to live out their own show biz fantasy, trading in their kitchen uniforms for circus costumes.
With a Latin flare, the “Mexican Donnie and Marie” are joined by the very tall singer/songwriter “Big Mike” Geier and the very short Chinese acrobat, Ling Rui, the Argentine Malambo dancer, clown and percussionist, Ann Bernard, Ukrainian contortionist, Vita Radionova and the French acrobatic trio, Les Petits Freres. It’s sort of a wide world of circus with a vaudeville accent. Every performer appeared to be flawless in their crafts.”
Well, we like to think this, but we are biased. No, this headline comes direct from CultureMob.com. Here it is again with a truly glitzy intro:
Teatro ZinZanni Does Everything Right
by Tom Mohrman
“¡Caliente!, the new show at Teatro ZinZanni, is completely over the top. You’ve got your acrobatics, your dancing, your jokes. There’s songs, sparklers, cabaret, an amazing five course dinner, and custom cocktails. The conceit for this season’s show is that the kitchen has been fired, but instead of accepting their pink slips, they stay for one last night, and put on the show of their dreams. Starring Christine Deaver and Robert Lopez (aka El Vez), the three and a half hours spent inside the spiegeltentis full of laughs and moments of wonder.”
