Reviews are in for the new Off-Broadway play Fruma-Sarah (Waiting in the Wings), written by E. Dale Smith and starring Jackie Hoffman. The production opened July 8 at the cell in Chelsea.

Hoffman plays an aging community theatre star cast in a production of Fiddler on the Roof. As she sits backstage awaiting her entrance as Fruma-Sarah, tethered to the fly system overhead, she prepares to navigate her hour-long exile to stage left alone when she meets Margo (Kelly Kinsella), a feisty substitute fly captain for the night.
