Jackie Hoffman: Themeless
Time Out says
The hilariously loud and grumpy Hoffman, who has stolen Broadway shows including Hairspray and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (and memorably lost a 2017 Emmy for her supporting turn Feud: Bette and Joan), is a throwback to the golden age of nightclub acts, when performers overflowed with larger-than-life personality. A cranky character comedian to the core, she hasn't mellowed out with success, and her robust whine gets even better with age. On a night off from her current role as Yente in Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish she performs a new set at Joe's Pub, directed as usual by Michael Schiralli.
