Part of the CORE: access program


Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State, ( a new comedy written by and starring Colin Quinn, will play beginning January 5 with the official opening scheduled for January 22. Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State is produced by Audible, Mike Lavoie, Carlee Briglia, and Brian Stern.

Colin Quinn is back and not a moment too soon. The satirical sage from Brooklyn returns with Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State, where he lays bare the absurdities, hypocrisies and calamities on both sides of the political divide. This is no witch hunt: Colin is here to own the libs, the conservs and all of you in between.

Colin Quinn is clearly excited to be back, saying, "We all know I don't owe this country anything. In fact it probably owes me. You, however, owe the country a visit to my show to give it a proper send off before it implodes."

Director Bobby Morseco, who last directed Colin Quinn on Broadway in An Irish Wake, said, "I couldn't be more excited to be working with Colin Quinn again, one of the smartest and funniest people in the business today, or any day."

Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State is directed by Bobby Moresco, with set design by Edward T. Morris, sound design by Sam Kusnetz, and lighting design by Aaron Copp.
