ABC News correspondent John Quiñones and Libby Pataki, former First Lady of New York, both attended Off-Broadway's newest hit comedy, HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER, on October 25th at Sofia's Downstairs Theater.
You too can experience the privilege, respect and air of superiority enjoyed by millions who call themselves New Yorkers. But it requires training, even if you were born here. Let HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER show you how to develop the instincts for disdainful glances, peevish muttering and innate rudeness that distinguish true New Yorkers. Under the direction of OBIE Award winner Robert Ross Parker, this hilarious new comedy shows audiences everything they ever needed to know about what it takes to be a real New Yorker, or at least not stand out as a tourist. Actors/Comedians and licensed NYC tour guides, Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle, take you on a whirlwind comedic romp filled with stories from the world's largest landfill in Staten Island to the home of the Bronx Bombers. All this, and a full Italian dinner (or lunch) catered by Sophia's Ristorante Italiano - an NYC tradition. Whether you're a local, transplant or tourist, HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER is fun for everyone!
HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER is produced Off-Broadway by CRC Productions and Marie B Productions. The playing schedule is Thursday and Friday evenings at 7:30 PM, with matinees Saturday at 2 PM. Pre-show lunch or dinner is served beginning 30 minutes before each performance at Sofia's Downstairs Theater, 221 West 46 Street (between Broadway & Eighth Ave.) Matinee tickets are $45 (which includes lunch) and evening performances are $55 (including dinner) and are available by calling 212-352-3101 or through www.How2BaNewYorker.com.
