Palo Alto Players
|Joey McDaniel, Robbie Reign, Elizabeth Santana, and Michael Monagle|
A slim, curvy woman in a tight, black gown slinks down the steps tempting us with her sexy "All That Jazz," kicking off in full style Palo Alto Players' 85th "Toniest-ever" season with Kander, Ebb, and Fosse's much-awarded, oft-revived Chicago. Already we in the audience realize that, while not a Broadway stage, the one before us is going to render an evening that is likely to be captivating, eye-popping, and professional in every respect.
