JACOB HOFFMAN is a New York-based, Chicago-bred artist. His career began early when, at age four, he commissioned, wrote, produced, directed, and starred in his Kindergarten class's inaugural (and only) Thanksgiving play. He's quite confident the play was a work of pure genius and hasn't looked back since.
Jacob spent much of his early years working in the Chicago theatre scene, making some choice TV appearances (ask him to tell you his Oprah story), and trying time and again to capture the magic that was his Kindergarten Thanksgiving Spectacular.
While still in Chicago, Jacob served as an Artistic Associate for Porchlight Music Theatre and as Artistic Director of Renegade Theatre Company, a youth-founded and run non-profit organization designed to provide professional opportunities for driven young artists.
Jacob is a graduate of New York University, holding a BFA in Drama from the Tisch School of the Arts. Since NYU, Jacob has worked extensively on the New York and Regional stage (but you can read his resume to see all that). You can catch him regularly at some of New York’s premier nightlife venues; he is a fixture of Feinstein’s 54 Below’s Sondheim Unplugged and 54 Below Sings series.
As an educator, Jacob partners with the Bridge Arts Ensemble, where he works as a teaching artist, bringing music enrichment education to school children across upstate New York. He is also a certified yoga instructor and private acting/audition coach. For all other things “Jacob,” be sure to follow him on social media, check out his upcoming events, or feel free to drop him a line - but let’s be real, you’ve already found the website, so you’re doing great.
