Photo Coverage: In Rehearsal with Jackie Hoffman's A CHANUKAH CAROL

Time Out NY Lounge will present Jackie Hoffman's A Chanukah Charol, her new holiday-themed, pseudo-autobiographical, one-woman show inspired by Patrick Stewart's A Christmas Carol. Michael Schiralli will direct. Performances will be Sunday December 11th, Sunday December 18th, Monday January 2nd (all at 7:30pm) at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street between Eighth & Ninth Avenues).

BroadwayWorld was there for an open rehearsal for the show, and you can check out photos of Hoffman in action below!

In Jackie Hoffman's all new holiday show, this kvetching comedienne is forced to examine her life when she is visited by the Ghosts of Chanukah Past, Present and Future, and even Molly Picon! What she finds on her quest for fame is that she is a dark desperate diva who would give Scrooge a run for his money. The New York Times described her previous holiday outings as "a beloved ritual for fans looking for a reprieve from the enforced benevolence and good cheer that reigns as the holiday onslaught reaches its peak."

Jackie Hoffman currently stars as Grandma in The Addams Family. Her other Broadway credits include Xanadu and Hairspray (for which she received the Theatre World Award). Off-Broadway she has been seen in Regrets Only, Pride & Joy, Book of Liz (Obie Award), Straightjacket, Incident at Cobbler's Knob, and One Woman Shoe. Regional credits include Second City (Jeff Award), Sisters Rosensweig. Film: Extra Man, Dirty Shame, Garden State, Legally Blonde II, Kissing Jessica Stein, Mo' Money, Robots, Queer Duck. TV: "30 Rock," "One Life to Live," "Starved," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Strangers with Candy," "TV Funhouse," "Conan," "Soulman," "Cosby." Her solo shows have garnered her MAC and Bistro Awards. She can be heard on the CD "Jackie Hoffman: Live at Joe's Pub" (where she is a frequent sell-out), as well as on the original Broadway cast recordings of Hairspray, Xanadu, and The Addams Family.

Tickets will be $35 and premium seats available at $55 (including a free drink). Tickets may be purchased by visiting Telecharge.com or calling (212) 239-6200 . Tickets may also be purchased in person at the New World Stages Box Office.
