Comedic actress Jackie Hoffman, best known to Broadway audiences for her performance in multiple roles in the Tony-winning Hairspray, will return to Joe's Pub in December with a new holiday-themed show.
Entitled Jackie Hoffman: Heeb for the Holidays, performances are scheduled for Dec. 20-24 at 7:30 PM.
The evenings will be directed by Michael Schiralli with musical direction by Bobby Peaco.
"What happens to a Jewish straight woman on a gay cruise during Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur?" press notes ask. "How does an unwanted aging actress survive in a New York overtaken by billionaires' toddlers? These questions may or may not be answered at Jackie Hoffman's long awaited return to Joe’s Pub."
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
