Friday, 20. January 2017, Palo Alto, A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine at Palo Alto Players

PERFORMS JAN 20 - FEB 5, 2017, at the LUCIE STERN THEATER in PALO ALTO!

Who better to shake those winter blues than the Marx Brothers! Two one-act musicals provide a “double feature” as hilarious as any presented in Hollywood’s heyday. The first act, A DAY IN HOLLYWOOD, takes us to the lobby of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in the 1930s where the ushers sing a musical tribute to the screen stars and productions of that magical era – including a musical homage to film clichés and a tap salute to the 1930 Production Code governing on-screen “naughtiness.” The second act, A NIGHT IN THE UKRAINE, sweeps us away to Russia for a madcap musical featuring all the usual loony Marx Brothers suspects. Nominated for nine Tony Awards, this rollicking, innovative two-musicals-in-one is a guaranteed toe-tapping, belly-laughing delight.
