Hoffman, who currently co-stars in the new musical Xanadu at the Helen Hayes Theatre, returned to the cabaret located within the Public Theater Feb. 4 and will also perform there Feb. 11 and 25. During the concerts Hoffman will "shamelessly retread her meanest musical hits in an evening of song that's just plain wrong," according to press notes. Michael Schiralli directs with musical direction by Bobby Peaco.
