Duluth's newest playhouse, the Teatro Zuccone, provides an intimate theatre experience with productions and experiences that make it stand alone amongst Duluth theatres.
The theatre is a part of the Zeitgeist Arts building, located on E. Superior Street in downtown Duluth.
"It's a great atmosphere to take in a show," theatre manager Cheryl Rensker said. "We offer a wide variety of productions, along with a great experience."
The Teatro Zuccone offers seating for a 120 people and a variety of shows for all audiences, with new productions every few weeks and the improv team performing every Friday night.
"It's really accessible in many ways, they do interesting, cutting edge shows," said Julie Ahasay, the director of recent Zuccone play, "The Woman in Black."
One of the unique things about the theatre is that they aren't afraid to present any performance, whether it be controversial or not.
"They're going to do 'Reefer Madness' next year as well as 'Tommy,'" Ahasay said. "So, they do risky stuff, [but] they're also going to start doing more shows for children as well."
The theatre tends to draw a wide variety of audiences depending on the show, but for the most part, it draws many more college students and young adults than most other theatres in the area, Rensker explained.
As part of the Zeitgeist Arts building, Teatro Zuccone and its neighbors are constantly buzzing with seekers of the arts who want to take in an enjoyable evening with many offerings.
While the Zinema 2 is still working on building a consistent audience, Ahasay believes that the Teatro Zuccone's early success will be a consistent trend.
"It's a nice venue, and they'll do anything," Ahasay said. "They make everything roll."
