Colin Quinn, Jerry Seinfeld’s Broadway show to become an HBO special

alg_quinn_seinfeld-300x225NEW YORK (AP) — Colin Quinn’s one-man show is making the leap from Broadway to HBO.

The premium cable network says it will tape the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian’s show, “Colin Quinn Long Story Short,” and air it in April.

The Jerry Seinfeld-directed 75-minute romp through history at the Helen Hayes Theatre on 44th Street has had its run extended twice since starting out off-Broadway in the summer.

The show — which takes theatergoers on a merry journey from the Greeks and Romans to India, China, Russia, Africa, Europe and, finally, America — is now set to close March 5.
