The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center proudly announces the West Coast premiere of Memoircita!, the new solo show by the award-winning Broadway and TV star Jackie Hoffman. Most recently celebrated for her role as Mamacita in the hit FX miniseries Feud: Bette and Joan, Hoffman returns to the Center’s Renberg Theatre for a three-night run on May 11-13, 2018. Memoircita! was written by Hoffman and Michael Schiralli, directed by Schiralli, and with Bobby Peaco on piano.

Best known for making a public spectacle of herself at last year’s Emmy Awards, Hoffman continues her downward spiral in L.A. Fresh off her fifth Broadway musical, this self-loathing scene stealer gives the inside dish on Broadway, filming Feud: Bette and Joan, and all things Emmy.

Long on comic talent and vocal power, short on patience with many things (children included), actor and comedian Hoffman is one of the stage and screen’s favorite scene stealers. After shining in supporting roles in Broadway’s Hairspray, Xanadu, The Addams Family, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, she made the transition to leading lady in last year’s critically-acclaimed off-Broadway revival of Once Upon a Mattress. She is also a fan favorite at New York’s Joe’s Pub, where she has performed a string of bawdy, vaudevillian solo shows including The Kvetching Continues, the venue’s longest running show of all time. Fresh off her Emmy-nominated performance as Mamacita in FX’s Feud: Betty and Joan, the Theatre World Award and Obie-winning Hoffman takes over the Renberg Theatre for a night of show tunes, covers, original songs, and “kvetching on an operatic scale” (New York Times).

Bobby Peaco has been a well-respected member of the New York cabaret community for nearly 20 years, garnering nine MAC awards presented by the Manhattan Association of Clubs and Cabarets for his work in the piano bars and six Bistro Awards presented by Backstage.
