Thursday night at the Cambria Hotel in Chicago's Theater District, I experienced Teatro ZinZanni, which combined all of these into a single evening performance.
I had heard good things about this show but an announcement that it would close in two days was the motivation I needed to buy Friday evening tickets.
At center stage was a cross-dressed oversexed giantess, who shamelessly teased and flirted with the audience, driving the show forward. He/she was funny and crass and over the top.
In between these, cast members ran among the tables in elaborate costumes interacting with the audience.
In between these, we enjoyed a very good dinner.
I did not know what to expect, but the show entertained us greatly.
Teatro ZinZanni has left Chicago to begin a run on the west coast. But the theater will reopen with Cafe Zazou in September. I think I know what to expect from this show.
But who knows?
