Off-Broadway's Hit HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER Celebrates Two Years of Performances!

The long-running Off-Broadway comedy smash HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER, starring Kevin James Doyle and Olivia Petzy, will celebrate its two-year anniversary tonight, August 22nd at Planet Hollywood Times Square. HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER began performances August 22, 2012 at Sofia's Downstairs Theater, where the show played to packed houses for more than a year. The production reopened on October 19, 2013 to unanimous rave reviews at the brand new Screening Room Theater at Planet Hollywood, 1540 Broadway (entrance on 45th Street just east of Broadway). Due to overwhelming demand, the producers of HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER recently put a new block of seats on sale through January 3, 2015.

Written by Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle, HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER delivers a laugh-filled tour around the greatest city in the world. Under the direction of OBIE Award winner Robert Ross Parker, this "SaturdayNight Live" style comedy features a hilarious look at NYC's 400-year history. Immigrants, construction workers, Wall Street bankers, panhandlers, MTA workers, and even cruelly maligned pigeons all get a solid lampooning! It doesn't matter if you were born on the Upper West Side or just took your first terrifying cab ride, you will love learning How to Be a New Yorker.

The playing schedule for HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER is Fridays at 7 PM and Saturdays at 1:30 & 7 PM. Lunch or dinner is served at each performance with a delicious menu, catered by Buca di Beppo, consisting of House Salad, Spaghetti Marinara, Fettuccini Alfredo, Chicken Parmigiana, and Cookies & Brownies. Tickets are $59 (including the full buffet) and are available by calling 212-352-3101 or through
