Following very positive reviews and a sold out run, Colin Quinn: The New York Story, written by and starring Colin Quinn, will return to the Cherry Lane Theatre from 20 October 2015 to 31 January 2016. The current run concludes on 16 August 2015.

The comedy is directed by Jerry Seinfeld and is produced by Brian Stern, Mike Lavoie and Mike Berkowitzand.

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 prejudices, paranoias and peculiaritie that make New York City the crossroads of the world."

The production features set designs by James Fauvell, costume designs by Alexis Forte, and lighting design by Sarah Lurie.

Colin Quinn is a stand up comedian from Brooklyn. His credits range from MTV's "Remote Control" to SNL to Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd". He's been on Broadway with 'Irish Wake' and 'Colin Quinn Long Story Short'. This latest production is based on his first and last book, 'The Coloring Book'.
