Colin Quinn: Long Story Short

Theatre : Broadway Playhouse, Chicago Illinois
Dates : August 24, 2011 - September 10, 2011
Running time: 75 minutes with no intermission


After being extended twice on Broadway, COLIN QUINN LONG STORY SHORT aired as an HBO Special in April 2011. Prior to Chicago, this critically-acclaimed, Drama Desk Award nominated hit will play East Hampton, Philadelphia and Montreal this summer. 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.

The New York Times and Variety rave "Hilarious," Entertainment Weekly exclaims "Stunning" and Time Magazine says "Colin Quinn nails it. State of the art."
