The Show: Be Italian is old country meets the new world in the latest larger-than-life Teatro ZinZanni concoction. When the head of New Jersey’s most famous Italian restaurant meets an untimely demise, the family scrambles to revamp Papa’s restaurant into a glittery show palace filled with divas, showgirls, and rocker chicks. Things go awry as family from the old country arrives to fulfill a centuries-old arranged marriage, with a couple that doesn’t quite see eye to eye. Add in trophy wives with psychic powers, handymen that fix more than lights, a Chinese chef that’s waiting to take flight, and you’ll get love and chaos, served ZinZanni style.
The Meal: A five-course dinner that includes an appetizer, salad, soup, entree, and dessert. Guests with dietary restrictions should notify the box office when confirming reservation. 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 17th 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 a multi-course meal as they take in the sultry spectacle.
