Bay Area icon Geoff Hoyle and blues phenomenon Duffy Bishop headline On the Air – joining an acclaimed international cast in a brand new San Francisco production opening October 13 and closing December 31, 2011. In a storyline that echoes Teatro ZinZanni’s own struggles to remain in San Francisco, the plot revolves around the struggle to keep a local radio station on the air. Taste Catering Chef Patrick Fassino Executive Pastry Chef and Bravo Top Chef Just Desserts Season One winner Yigit Pura will collaborate to create a special new “Americana” menu to complement the cabaret and circus-infused performances of On the Air.
"We are proud to trace our lineage back to the very beginnings of theater in San Francisco,” says Norm Langill, Teatro ZinZanni’s President and artistic director. “Teatro ZinZanni is one in a long line of high-spirited San Francisco theatrical experiences combining the arts of vaudeville, cabaret, cirque and opera with great food and strong drink. Showbiz is unpredictable, but we can celebrate an amazing eleven year run on Pier 27 and 29. Working together with city leaders, we are determined to find a permanent home in San Francisco. Our show mirrors the spirit of this city–both embrace magic, silliness, frivolity, fun, intimacy and self-expression. We’ll be back. This is home.”
