Hoffman workshopped the retuned version of My Sinatra in a series of free public readings in May. The production opens June 4 with a fresh book by Hoffman and musical direction by Alex Nelson.
Hoffman created and stars in the work in which he duplicates Sinatra's vocals on more than 20 signature songs. The work centers on Hoffman's "poignant and hilarious obsession with the life and music of Frank Sinatra."
The piece was originally written by Hoffman and Paul Linke, who also directed previous stagings. It played a run at Los Angeles' Zephyr Theatre in 2008, prior to arriving in New York in 2009 in a revised form. That year PBS also aired Hoffman's "My Sinatra – The Song and the Stories."
My Sinatra will play Saturdays at 2:30 and 7:30 PM; Sundays at 5:30 PM; and Mondays at 7:30 PM. The Midtown Theatre is located within the HA Comedy Club, at 163 West 46th Street.
