Olivia Petzy Joins Off-Broadway's HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER Tonight
Olivia Petzy is joining the cast of the long-running Off-Broadway comedy smash HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER tonight (Friday) at Planet Hollywood. She is assuming the roles(s) formerly played by Margaret Copeland who is set to be married this month.
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 Times Square, 1540 Broadway (entrance on 45th Street just east of Broadway).
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 "Saturday Night 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.
Olivia Petzy is an actor and improviser in New York City. She studied musical theater at Point Park University and improv at Upright Citizens Brigade and Magnet Theater, where she performs regularly.
