Romantic Pick

Teatro ZinZanni Presents Caliente!
Christine Deaver and Robert Lopez return to San Francisco to create new characters of Tres and Cinco, a brother and sister team who galvanize the troops with a Latin flavor and prove that, against all odds, "the show must go on."

In a storyline seemingly ripped from the current headlines, times are tough and the tent is threatened with closure. In the spirit of Chaplin and the Marx Brothers, pandemonium ensures when the kitchen staff refuses the pink slips.


With only one night left to live out their show biz fantasies, our underdogs band together as "back-of-house" heads to "front-of-house" in typical ZinZanni style. A realtor with a heart of steel finds her inner chanteuse, the real estate developer turns into an aerialist, and non-stop entertainment is had by all. In the end, of course, artists save the day and the circus stays in town!

Set along San Francisco's historic waterfront, Teatro ZinZanni is a bewitching evening of European Cabaret and Cirque, Divas and Madmen, Spectacle and Sensuality with Live Music and a Gourmet Five-Course Dinner.

Now through June 19, 2011 along the Embarcadero. For more information call: (415) 438-2668.
