Teatro ZinZanni 

Please join us for a wonderful evening of music, dance, trapeze and comedy as we spend the evening at the delightfully quirky Teatro ZinZanni. The elegant and intimate comfort of the antique Belgian spiegeltent (or mirror tent) is the perfect backdrop for this slightly PG-13 show with just a touch of circus, vaudeville and burlesque.
