In one sense, it doesn’t matter where Teatro ZinZanni pitches its spiegeltent, its portable performance venue; once inside, you’re transported to some Old World picture-postcard spot where every night is New Year’s Eve, the entertainment is Moulin Rouge with a dash of camp, and the music can be anything from Offenbach to Pat Benatar. Still, it wasn’t easy for the cast of this cabaret and dinner show to move from Lower Queen Anne last year when its long-term lease ended. An interim six-month stint at Redmond’s Marymoor Park was a success, but now the troupe has found a permanent home on the grounds of the former Redhook Brewery in Woodinville. Easing the transition into ZinZanni’s new production, Hollywood & Vine, will be familiar faces, such as hostess Christine Deaver, ballerina Ariana Lallone and acrobat Domitil Aillot; new cast members include hoop artist Aleysa Gulevich and Timber Brown, master of the Chinese pole (think vertical dance/acrobatics). 11/1–4/28/2019. Times and prices vary. Teatro ZinZanni, Woodinville, 14100 NE 145th St.; 206.802.0015; zinzanni.com/seattle
