Avi Hoffman’s Still Jewish...After All These Years sees the brilliant actor-writer-comedian walking, singing and even moonwalking down memory lane as he looks back on his 40 years as a professional performer. The show is a follow-up to his wildly successful Too Jewish! and Too Jewish Two! These two tour-de-force revues won a plethora of awards and became popular features in international productions and on PBS-TV. Now, Avi ventures even further with his latest hilarious gambitStill Jewish...After All These Years!
Hanky Panky weaves a wonderfully funny and warm tale about a zany Jewish family in 1950s Brooklyn. The pathos involves the emergence of the female in this smart and hilarious story that sees the family's mother wanting to learn English so as to be able to communicate to the widest audience at her son's wedding. Playwrights Charles Gruber and Charles Goldman have tapped the venerable Jewish comedy and song star Avi Hoffman to play the family's erstwhile uncle who is a former Vaudeville and Yiddish Second Avenue theater star who is now a waiter at his wife's restaurant. The chaos thrown at the Zuckerman family leads them on a wild and riotous ride as Hanky Panky marches the audience through a song-filled, laugh-filled and heart-warming play with music.
