Acting

How It Started...

Ana Hoffman’s journey into the acting spotlight began when her vocal prowess captured attention on a Houston, TX campus, leading to an immediate scholarship offer to join the jazz choir. This marked the inception of her theatrical aspirations, which flourished as she pursued a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre at Sam Houston State University. Her trajectory took a professional turn when she became a part of the esteemed Ensemble Theatre in Houston, refining her skills through various theatrical productions. However, the pivotal moment arrived when she was personally selected by Henry Krieger to star in the revival of the Broadway sensation “Dreamgirls” at the iconic
Apollo Theatre.

With that milestone, Ana’s career journey expanded, encompassing global stages during a National Broadway tour and off-Broadway performances in New York City, including renowned venues such as The Folksbeine Theatre, Minetta Lane, Symphony Space, and The Baruch Arts Center. Recently, Ana shone as Josephine Baker in Barry Manilow’s lauded musical masterpiece “Harmony,” a recipient of critical acclaim from The New York Times and the prestigious Drama Desk Award.

Ana’s on-screen presence emerged with her film debut in the Emmy-winning Netflix documentary “Dick Johnson is Dead,” directed by Kirsten Johnson. She further showcased her talent in national commercials and print campaigns for Poland Spring, AT&T, and Personal Capital. Beyond the realms of theater and television, Ana’s artistic versatility extends to audiobook narration. Her inaugural book, “What Napoleon Could Not Do,” is available on Audible through Penguin RandomHouse Publishing. Expanding her creative horizons, Ana celebrated the triumph of her self-written, self-produced work, “Life is Jazz,” a captivating homage to the Harlem Renaissance. This production, a sensory journey through jazz standards, earned resounding praise as the headlining act at the 48th annual Bermuda Music Festival.
