A Chanukah Carol Is Jewbilant--And Back

Jackie Hoffman is bringing back her hilarious A Chanukah Carol in which the famed kvetchaholic rethinks her life after being visited by Ghosts of Chanuah Past, Present, and Future, and Molly Picon.

As a Dickens musical, this will made Edwin Drool while putting a cocktail Oliver in your Manischewitz.

To celebrate its return, I asked Hoffman two little questions:

*Anything new in the show?

Hoffman:

There are some added bits, in fact. The spirit of Chanukah Past remarks on my sexual history and tells me that it inspired his gay porn collections. I remark that I'm glad they weren't cracking down on illegal immigration then or I never would have gotten laid. We also put in a bit about hysterectomy and my brush with death while working at the Manhattan Theatre Club. There has to be a redundancy joke in there somewhere. What's different about it is that it is different from any Christmas child-filled song-of-hope red and green ugly crap.

*What do you want for Chanukah this year besides good reviews?

Hoffman:

A miracle of eight full houses. And anything by Burberry. And any part that Katie Finneran turned down.
