Writer and stand-up comic Colin Quinn follows up the successful off-Broadway run of his one-man show, Colin Quinn: Long Story Short, with a limited engagement featuring new content and humor. Quinn applies his sarcastic style to track the demise of empires throughout history and draw parallels between the past and modern pop culture. This show delivers a lesson on bygone eras through a lens shaped by more than 25 years of laughter extraction on comedy-club stages and in writers' warrens for television shows such as Saturday Night Live and In Living Color. Jerry Seinfeld took time off from his day job of scouring syndicated Seinfeld episodes for editing inconsistencies to direct the show and add his comedic insights. Seats are located in the orchestra section and first five rows of the mezzanine in the Helen Hayes Theatre, an intimate theater completed in 1912 as a venue for distressed matchstick children to keep warm while performing the works of Henrik Ibsen.
