When Jackie Hoffman takes the stage, laughter ensues! That is exactly what happened on Sunday, December 11, 2011 when I attended Jackie Hoffman's "A Chanukah Charol." Jackie has taken her one-woman show to a new level of funny! This time around, she has done her own paraody of Patrick Stewart's "A Christmas Carol," but set against the Jewish holiday of Chanukah.
Taking a look at her life and career through the eyes of Chanukah past, present, and future, Jackie did a stellar job playing all of the characters while still making it easy to follow the story. What makes Jackie so funny is not only her material, but her delivery. Jackie has terrific comedic timing, which is why she and her one-woman shows have been such a success!
"A Chanukah Charol" is a wonderful ode of Jackie's life, career, and most of all talent! With only two more shows left, I would highly suggest making "A Chanukah Charol" part of your holiday season on either December 18 or January 2 at New World Stages in NYC (350 West 50th Street, between 8th & 9th Avenue)!
