Language mix-ups and cultural misunderstandings abound, romance unexpectedly heats up, and hilarity permeates Palo Alto Players' current Chinglish.  Presented with a superb ensemble, six of whom speak fluent Mandarin, Chinglish continues through June 28 at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.

My full review is posted at Talkin' Broadway, a first for me.  I am now the S.F. South Bay critic for this national arts website.  Please follow the link for my take on this excellent production.
