Colin Quinn taking his show Long Story Short Off-Broadway

Former SNL Weekend Update anchor Colin Quinn is taking his show Long Story Short off-Broadway. Long Story Short will play an eight-week engagement at the Bleecker Street Theatre beginning June 18 while the run will conclude August 15. The show, directed by Jerry Seinfeld, is described as "Colin Quinn’s hilarious look at the ups and downs of great civilizations gone wrong. In this one-man sendup, Quinn channels comedic personalities of nations past, offering satirical takes on the attitudes, appetites and habits that toppled powerful empires. Charting a comical course from the excess of ancient Rome to WalMart/Costco/BestBuy, Quinn proves that the forces undermining the American empire are as old as time."
Tickets are available by phoning (212) 239-6200 or by visiting Telecharge. The Bleecker Street Theatre is located at 45 Bleecker Street between Bowery and Lafayette Street.
Maybe something to do for my New York readers?
