Christian Hoff To Host Florence Henderson’s Joe’s Pub Concerts!

May 25th, 2007 reports that Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys star Christian Hoff will host the June 11 concerts at 7 and 9:30 PM. Hoff and Henderson have worked together before; in the late eighties they filmed an ABC Afterschool Special entitled “Just a Regular Kid: An AIDS Story.” The TV movie, which aired Sept. 9, 1987, cast Henderson as the mom of Hoff, who had contracted AIDS through a blood transfusion.

Henderson’s evening will cover the singing actress’ entire career, from her discovery by composer Richard Rodgers through her recent role on VH1′s reality show “The Surreal Life.” Henderson will include songs and stories from her musical career, and will also engage in a discussion and question-and-answer session about everything “Brady.”

Joe’s Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street. There is a $25 cover charge and a $12 food-drink minimum. Tickets are on sale by calling (212) 967-7555. For more information visit

A special AfterParty will follow the 11 PM performance to benefit Lifebeat. The party will be held at Chinatown Brasserie, 380 Lafayette Street, beginning at 10 PM. It is one block south of Joe’s Pub.


  1. (To the tune of The Brady Bunch Theme Song:)

    Here’s a story of a man named Valli
    Whose singing had ‘em wowed throughout the land
    He had a voice just like an angel
    And a songwriter who really was just grand.

    It’s a story of a very fine playwright
    Who had written all these movies for the screen
    And he hooked up with a man named Elice
    Who knew precisely how to write a moving scene

    Then one day these two terrific team-ups
    Met a wonderful director with the name of Des
    And they knew it was far more than a given
    That with Jersey Boys they all had great success!

    Florence (“Carol”) has certainly held up well after all these years. Wish I could be there!

  2. Hi Christian: Wish you luck in hosting Florence Henderson’s Concerts. Don’t know if you remember me. I’ve seen the show six times and first met John when I sent him an e-mail after seeing the show in preview and predicting that you guys would win a Tony as well as the show. I was at the Tony’s to root you guys in and it was awesome to be there. Since, then I have had a somewhatRude Awakening and a Reality Check, but I’m one tough lady and a survivor and have learned from the experience and benefited from it. Met all you guys backstage and it was indeed a pleasure.

    It is a small world. I just got back from a Cruise to the Mediterranian where Florence Henderson was on the Emerald Princess with us and she and the other mothers and daughters, from the Brady Bunch, etc. (Erin Moran, Susan Olsen and Marion Ross) named the ship while we were in Piraeus, Greece. They were all very warm and approachable and got to chat with all of them. We had a magnificent time and planning our next Cruise to Australia, since we made a new friend from Perth on board, as well as someone from Beverly Hills. Both invited us to visit them and we plan on combining both during the same voyage. Before I do that, plan on seeing Jersey Boys one more time and hope it’s possible to say hello to the Jersey Boys in a climate that’s pleasant and comfortable as in the past. My best always – Lois Halpern
