Paradise Ballroom is the place where you can be anything you want to be. A musical from the mind of the Toledo Show. Toledo began his music career in the then-underground poetry circuit of places like max’s Garage, ad-libbing with such cats as Angelo Moore of Fishbone, Trulio Disgracious and Macy Gray. People filled the rooms and it wasn’t long before his words took on a melodic life of their own. Musicians, whose twisted notes were the melodies of his soul and women, like breaths of the past that only dance in high-heels, bring the stories that live in his head out into the choreographed madness that is The Toledo Show, the longest running, most talked about cabaret show in Los Angeles. Mixing speak-easy jazz, funky bass lines, horns, and the smoky, soulful voice of Toledo, the standing-room-only crowds don’t know whether to dance or just watch for fear of missing something.
