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/dinner too!Full Italian lunch/dinner is catered by Sofia's Ristorante Italiano – a NYC tradition. Whether you're a local, transplant or tourist, HOW 2 B A NEW YORKER is fun for everyone!

Did the How To Be New Yorker dinner show at Planet Hollywood NYC. Dirty little back room. Buffet style dinner with frozen chicken parm boiled noodles. Choc chip cookies for dessert, expensive drink prices. Show was awful. Don't waste your money.
