The comedians' satirical take on the history of the world is headed to the Helen Hayes Theatre for an 11-week run beginning Oct. 22. The show debuted off-Broadway this summer.
"Colin Quinn: Long Story Short" is a daffy, 75-minute journey about mankind from the dawn of civilization to the tech age. Quinn, a former "Saturday Night Live" star with a raspy, jerky delivery, previously was on Broadway in "Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake" in 1998.
Seinfeld, making his stage directing debut, has paced the show as a series of self-contained, 10-minute or so routines, helping provide a base for Quinn's path through time and space.
