The venue is something to be desired, but, hey, the food was good and most of all the show was entertaining. Will take my husband to see it soon if I can.

Reading reviews of both the restaurant (food and wait staff) and the show; I really wasn't expecting much. So I really was plesantly surprised.

The show was easy going, light hearted fun - not quality roll-in-the-isles stuff, but...continued

The show was informative, not just for tourists, but even for people who were born in New York. It was also hilarious. The actors were great!!!!

Description

You too can experience the privilege, respect and air of superiority enjoyed by millions who call themselves New Yorkers. But it requires training, even if you were born here. Let us show you how to develop the instincts for disdainful glances, peevish muttering and innate rudeness that distinguish true New Yorkers.

Under the direction of OBIE Award winner Robert Ross Parker, the hilarious new comedy How 2 B A New Yorker shows audiences everything they ever needed to know about what it takes to be a real New Yorker, or at least not stand out as a tourist.

Actors/Comedians and licensed NYC tour guides, Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle, take you on a whirlwind comedic romp filled with stories from the world’s largest landfill in Staten Island to the home of the Bronx Bombers. All this, and lunch too, at Sofia’s Downstairs. Full Italian lunch is catered by Sophia’s Ristorante Italiano – a NYC tradition. Whether you’re a local, transplant or tourist, How 2 B A New Yorker is fun for everyone! 

This show is recommended for those age 13 and older due to some adult themes.
