STAGE TUBE: HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER Stars Serve Coffee on the Subway

A hilarious new HOW 2 B A NEW YORKER SUBWAY PROMO video made its debut this morning, and you can check it out below! The video features real New York commuters with Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle, the stars of Off-Broadway's hit comedy HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER which opened on October 17, 2012, at Sofia's Downstairs Theater in the heart of Times Square.

The HOW 2 B A NEW YORKER SUBWAY PROMO confronts the stark reality that New Yorkers' daily commute is regularly interrupted by unsolicited entertainment from break dancers, fruit snacks being sold for kids basketball teams or help for the homeless. What New Yorkers are not accustomed to is being offered a no strings attached gift! And is there anything New Yorker's crave more in the morning than coffee? In the new video, straphangers are seen losing their guard, shedding that crusty New York exterior and smiling on their way to work thanks to HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER!

NYC's comedy smash HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER delivers a laugh-filled tour around the greatest city in the world with actors, comedians and licensed tour guides Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle as they play over 60 characters. 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, muggers, Wall Street bankers, panhandlers, MTA workers, and Mayor Bloomberg all get a solid lampooning!
