The star of PBS-broadcast shows Too Jewish? and Too Jewish, Too!, Avi Hoffman returns to the stage for Still Jewish…After All These Years!, another one-man tour de force of songs, stories, and comedy. Through these media, Hoffman reflects on his 40-year career in show business and the tradition of Yiddish theater. The performer walks the line between whimsy and introspection, comparing his younger self to an 8-year-old Zero Mostel at one moment, and delivering a heart-wrenching rendition of “New York State of Mind” the next—expressing his love for the Big Apple and its significance to the Jewish identity. Like a whoopee cushion filled with pepper spray, his bittersweet tales and ditties move audiences to both laughter and tears.
