Nordic gods and goddesses party down in Teatro ZinZanni’s new show, “Dinner at Wotan’s.” Top-dog deity Wotan (irresistible imp Geoff Hoyle) is a chopper-riding, soccer-loving punk with a Brit accent. (Jarion Monroe takes over as Wotan, starting next week). Also in this Valhalla: mythic figures belting ABBA and Queen hits, a gnomelike clown trio, an amorous Thor, ace acrobats and a beguiling ex-PNB ballerina (Ariana Lallone). This boisterous edition of the Seattle dinner-cabaret can be overbearing at times. But if Wagner-meets-Monty Python is your goblet of mead, expect Viking gags, zany audience participation bits — plus a clever musical jam-up of “The Ring,” Swedish folk ditties and 1980s chart-toppers. As Queen asked, Who wants to live forever? Wotan and his gang of immortals, of course.

Runs through May 12 at the Teatro ZinZanni spiegeltent, 222 Mercer St., Seattle. Times, prices and tickets: 206-802-0015 or
