Melora Hardin Goes from THE OFFICE to “At the Water Cooler”

January 2, 2008 by  

Melora Hardin, The Office

It was announced today that THE OFFICE’s Melora Hardin will be moonlighting from her day job on the highly successful comedy to entertain at the Catalina Jazz Club with her show “At the Water Cooler.” This exclusive engagement will take place on Friday, January 4th at 9 PM, Saturday, January 5th at 9 PM and Sunday, January 6th at 7:30 PM located at Catalina Jazz Club, 6725 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028. For ticket information please go to or call 323-466-2210.

Melora has been writing songs and singing since she was a young girl of about 10 years old. Not unlike the joke “I’m really a waitress who can only get work as an actress,” Melora is a singer who has been kept busy acting for her entire career, thus far. And that’s in addition to being married and having two kids.

Well, this past year, she decided to put together a show of her music and other music, influenced by Broadway, Jazz and Standards, and debut it in Los Angeles, at Catalina Jazz Club on Sunset.

Melora states, “It’s both a challenge and a dream come true and the perfect way to start 2008!” “I can’t wait to get up there on stage and sing my heart out,” elaborates Melora.

Melora has been sneaking back and forth to New York and finally engaged Musical Director Ben Toth and Director Richard Jay-Alexander to lead the way. Jay-Alexander has worked with many of the best – Ricky Martin, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Bernadette Peters, Betty Buckley, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Polly Bergen, Bette Midler and many more. Most recently, Jay-Alexander directed the off-Broadway play, A Safe Harbor for Elizabeth Bishop and concert productions for some of the world’s greatest entertainers. Toth as a musical director has performed extensively with Andrea McArdle, Mandy Patinkin, and Michael Tucker/Jill Eikenberry. In 2003, Toth music directed Tony-Award-Winner Duncan Sheik’s The Nightingale. Jay-Alexander and Toth have worked together many times.

For “At the Water Cooler” they’ve thrown together a hot band of 5 and a bubble machine. This engagement and show will mark Melora’s debut in the club scene and she’s been in rehearsal now for about six months.

Melora can currently be seen on the highly successful and critically-acclaimed NBC show “The Office.” She recently made her directorial debut with the independent feature entitled “You.” Next she will be seen in the Lifetime Original Movie, “ME, MOM, DAD and HER” and the feature film “27 Dresses” opposite Katherine Heigl. Currently she is filming the feature film “Seventeen” opposite Zac Efron.

    So much beauty and talent bestowed upon one person. I should hate Melora, but I just love her too much.

    At least she has something to keep her busy until this darn writer’s strike is over and then she can get back to being Jan.
