A public workshop presentations of a new work-in-progress, COLIN QUINN THE NEW YORK STORY, directed by Jerry Seinfeld. The performances will feature Colin Quinn presenting the full show with the focus on the text and performer, with minimal staging and production elements.
In COLIN QUINN THE NEW YORK STORY, Colin bemoans the rise and fall of his hometown, the city formally known as NY, from its modest beginnings as Dutch outpost to the hipsters of modern Williamsburg to the vermin below and above ground. Quinn is once again at his satirical best, taking aim at the prejudice, paranoia’s, and peculiarities that make New York City the crossroads of the world. Based on Colin's best-selling book, The Coloring Book (Grand Central Publishing)
