Jackie Hoffman: Themeless
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
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.
