The J.A.P Show, which is conceived by Cory Kahaney, combines stand-up comedy by four current funny ladies with tributes to some of the great Jewish comediennes of yesteryear, including Belle Barth and Totie Fields.

The show also stars Kahaney, Cathy Ladman, Jessica Kirson, Sherry Davey, Julie Goldman and Betsy Salkind. It is directed by Dan Fields, with scenic design by Jo Winiarski, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.

Hoffman is best known for her work in the Broadway musical Hairspray and for her many appearances at Joe's Pub. Her other stage credits include The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told, The Sisters Rosensweig, and Regrets Only. She also co-starred in the film Kissing Jessica Stein.

Xanadu, to be directed by Christopher Ashley and written by Douglas Carter Beane, will also star Kerry Butler, James Carpinello, Tony Roberts, and Mary Testa.
