Teatro ZinZanni welcomes ticket holders to "On the Air" in the spiegeltent. This 3.5-hour show comes with a five-course meal, which includes an appetizer, salad, soup, entree and dessert. After nestling into their seats, patrons take in the show's spectacle, a story about radio broadcasting's heyday that's packed with aerial acrobatics. A star recounts tales of spying alongside an eclectic cast of high-flying acrobats, an ambitious jingle singer, and other colorful characters.
Guests enjoy the show at white-clothed tables while digging into a five-course meal. Vegetarian entrees are available by request; guests with dietary restrictions should call the box office ahead of time. Wine, cocktails, and nonalcoholic drinks are available for additional fees.

In 1992, Norman Langill stopped his stroll down a Barcelona street on a curiosity-driven whim and entered a magical, alternative universe. What he found was one of Europe's few remaining spiegeltents—portable dance halls that had once acted as homes for wandering cabarets and circuses. Enchanted by the space and the rakish show inside, Langill resolved to bring the experience back to America.
Now in its 15th year, Teatro ZinZanni brings Langill's dream to life inside an imported Belgian spiegeltent originally constructed in 1910. Amid its hand-carved wooden columns and sparkling stained glass, performers enact enchanted evenings that blend European cirque, live music, clowning, and cabaret. Audiences seated restaurant-style at white-clothed tables also savor five-course meals prepared by Chef Erik Carlson as they take in the sultry spectacle.
