Seattle Sights: Teatro ZinZanni "Return to Paradise"

Return to Paradise!

Teatro ZinZanni is about to end an epic run of a little show that's melding the best nostalgia of our age into an amalgam of fresh fun.

Blast off in Teatro ZinZanni's time machine and travel back to hippest party of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair.

Diva Gracie Hansen of Paradise ZinZanni cordially invites you back in time to an exclusive evening where Elvis Presley rocks the house, Jimi Hendrix jams with the band and Bruce Lee shows off all his moves.

At this World's Fair, the future is the past, love conquers science and the party never ends!

Tourist Tip #1 Be prepared for something a little different. This show was crafted to leave the science in the wings and bring on the flair and true carefree spirit of the 1960's!


What Critics are Saying

Milton W. Hamlin  is the A&E Writer for SGN. He informs us that "This ZinZanni outing is a salute to the 50th anniversary of Century 21, the Seattle World's Fair of 1962. ... Elvis sang, courted Priscilla (my heart be still!) and they married. Onstage. And we were the wedding guests ... imagine"

The Seattle TravelGram gives high praise for the performances, "The cast, however, is what makes this show.  Hostess Gracie Hansen, played by Christine Deaver, is a star of many a show at Teatro, who never disappoints. Her wit and comedic timing, paired with her singing voice and larger than life presence, makes her a star among us."

Tourist Tip #2 The meal served caters to carnivores and vegetarians alike. Just make sure to bring your appetite and they'll take care of the rest.

“I have been here a handful of times and each time the shows and the food were completely different. ... They do an outstanding job of interacting with the audience, regardless of where you are sitting, they use the entire space to capture and entertain you. An evening here is memorable and entertaining, worth the money.

The food was good as well - you had choices from the menu and their drinks are very good also. A wonderful place for laughter, good food and time with friends or family."
