Teatro Zinzanni, the nonprofit arts organization masquerading frequently as a circus-like dinner theater extraordinaire, will go dark on Pier 29 after New Years Eve 2011 and emerge in a new permanent Embarcadero location in late 2012, it was announced today.

The move, which brings to a close an 11-year stint on the pier, will help make way for the buildout and lead-up to the 2013 America's Cup sailing finals. The new big top will go up at the intersection of Broadway, Davis, and Embarcadero streets. In a plot closely mirroring Teatro's recent uncertainties, the company's current show, On the Air, depicts a small radio station struggling for survival. But by partnering with the city on this relocation, Teatro's story has a happy ending and a promising new beginning ahead.
