After her SOLD OUT winter residency and a feature article in The New York Times, Michelle Hoffman (better known as “Shells”), the famed JPMorgan Chase analyst-cum-cabaret sensation, returns to Joe's Pub for a limited spring engagement. Shells is ready to shed her 9-to-5 facade and prove she has what it takes to become an international pop sensation. During these rough financial times, she is certain that she has what it takes to become the next “insta-star,” connecting with her audience in an authentic way and rising to her stardom. Performing elaborate, original numbers ranging in style from Lady Gaga to Radiohead, and incorporating covers written by her “celebrity friends,” this Carrie Bradshaw wannabe challenges the audience with her bold style. When matters of her personal life are brought up, the show takes an unexpected turn. Armed with a glass of Shiraz and a penchant for drunk-dialing, Shells leaves audience members laughing deliriously, saying: "I know her," or worse, "I am her!"
