I DREAM OF JACKIE! is a fantastical tale straight from the Arabian Nights with Jackie Cox starring as a magical Genie let loose in New York City. Armed with only three wishes and a song in her heart, Jackie tells her story through her signature blend of musical theater and hit pop songs, dancing, and outrageous comedy. Plus, she's brought handsome Harem Boys Drew Bloom and Blake McIver along for the ride. It’s just what you wished for!
