STAGE TUBE: Highlights from JACKIE FIVE-OH!

In the all-new JACKIE FIVE-OH!, the blisteringly funny, filter-free Hoffman muses on her own decay at 50, her career of playing ‘bit' parts, her thoughts about being in The Addams Family and an array of other topics running the gamut from Queen Latifah to Kristen Chenoweth. Hoffman also sings five new original songs (written with musical director Bobby Peaco). Click below for highlights from the show!

Hilton Als in The New Yorker called JACKIE FIVE-OH! "a sensational new show" and added "why doesn't some clever producer wrap Hoffman up in a solo show on Broadway, where she belongs?" David Rooney in The New York Times calledJACKIE FIVE-OH! "savagely funny" and said "Ms. Hoffman's acid-dipped acts are always a ‘gurney' worth taking." Adam Feldman in Time Out wrote, "Like cloves, a little of Jackie goes a long way. But a lot of Jackie, it turns out, can go even further-as she has proven time and again in her hilariously grumpy one-woman shows at Joe's Pub, which have won her a well-deserved cult following. JACKIE FIVE-OH! finds Hoffman in excellent form. Her robust whine gets better with age." David Sheward in Backstage wrote, "the blisteringly funny Hoffman unflinchingly skewers sacred cows such as the Tony Awards and Holocaust movies, flings acid barbs at the Broadway hierarchy, and does painfully accurate imitations of a gallery of showbiz icons."

JACKIE FIVE-OH! is written by Hoffman and Michael Schiralli, and directed by Schiralli. Musical numbers are co-written with Bobby Peaco, who is also the musical director.
