Golden Globe Award-winning comedian Jerry Seinfeld directs the 75-minute comedy, which arrived on Broadway Oct. 22 after an extended run Off-Broadway over the summer. Long Story Short will play a limited run through Jan. 8, 2011.
According to producers, "Comically channeling the demise of great world empires, Colin Quinn uses his 'articulate brand of comedy' in taking audiences through an uproarious history of the world in 75 minutes. From his personification of Caesar as the original Italian mobster to his complaints about Ancient Greece and Antigone giving way to Costco and Snooki, Quinn is at his satirical best, taking on the attitudes, appetites and bad habits that toppled the world’s most powerful nations. Colin Quinn Long Story Short proves that throughout human history, the joke has always been on us."
