Seinfeld helms Quinn’s ‘Story’

Show to play eight weeks Off Broadway

Jerry Seinfeld will direct Colin Quinn in solo show “Long Story Short,” set for an eight-week run this summer at Off Broadway’s Bleecker Street Theater.

Seinfeld makes his Off Broadway helming debut with the show, which he’s heavily involved in shaping, according to a rep for the production. Both Seinfeld and Quinn have played Broadway in the past, in separate limited runs in 1998.

Quinn’s comedic monologue focuses on 2,000 years of human civilization and the rise and fall of its great empires, stretching from ancient Rome to Walmart.

Seinfeld’s attachment to the project could attract the attention of summer tourist auds to the Off Broadway outing. Often fare that plays off the Main Stem can have trouble competing for visitors’ dollars against the more-hyped titles on the Rialto.

Produced by Columbus 81 Prods., the 75-minute “Long Story” has a design team that includes Aaron Rhyne (sets and projections), Perchik Kreiman-Miller (lights) and Scott Elmegreen (sound).

Limited engagement of “Long Story” will play June 19-Aug. 15.
