Kevin James Doyle And Margaret Copeland In Central Park

The writers & stars of the Off-Broadway hit comedy HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER confronted last Thursday’s heat wave head on by bringing free lemonade to thirsty New Yorkers in Central Park. Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle wound their way through the hot, humid park Thursday morning 5/30, distributing refreshing liquid reinforcements to locals and tourists (without discrimination!), making loads of new friends along the way.

NYC’s comedy smash HOW TO BE A NEW YORKER opened on October 17, 2012 to rave reviews at Sofia’s Downstairs Theater in the heart of Times Square.

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! 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.
