My name is Sharon Glassman.
I entertain book, music, food and drink lovers by performing excerpts and tunes from my funny, music-fueled novel-with-songs, BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN in fun private and public places.
I call my show THE LAZY PERSON’S BOOK CLUB because you sit back, snack, quaff and relax while I entertain you, solo, and with other singer/actors.

It’s the funnest hour a person could have. I can’t wait to hear what happens next!
—Sherri Prince, Busy Book Lover
What’s really fun – and cool – about BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN?
BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN sets a funny, modern, music-fueled love story with a touch of math and mystery in Frank Sinatra’s hometown.
The vibe: PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION-meets-GILDA RADNER 2.0
The songs of BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN range from jazz and cabaret to country/bluegrass and swing. Not to brag, but two of them are COMBO songwriting contest prizewinners.
2015 is Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday year.
BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN is a fun time and a great way to bring fresh programming to the library. Our patrons enjoy it immensely.
—Stephanie Myers, Librarian
Will you perform for my group?
THE LAZY PERSON’S BOOK CLUB delivers creative entertainment for parties, employee gatherings, classroom events, birthday parties, showers and more.
I’m a seasoned performer who’s sung about the nerdy joys of Twitter in a Broadway Theater. And I’m great at performing in non-traditional spaces.
I have performed in private living rooms, corporate boardrooms, post office lobbies, physics labs, church basements and printing shops nationwide.

Can you tailor your show to include our food/drink/edibles/company?
Yes! Here’s a fun article about the Aromatic Concert I created, pairing songs with organically-scented waters from a local farm.
I’ve worked with bakers and distillers to create custom-themed baked goods and cocktails, so the audience can literally “consume” the story as they hear it.
