Back in May 2013 those experiencing THE RIDE were treated to a special performance by the stars of the hit Off-Broadway comedy,How to Be a New Yorker. Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle performed the opening sketch for the show in which they are dressed in elderly garb, complaining of a bygone New York City before gentrification ruined all the fun.
How to Be a New Yorker is a “Saturday Night Live” style comedy which features a hilarious look at New York’s 400 year history through short sketches performed only by Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle. Native New Yorkers, frequent commuters, and tourists alike will enjoy this show.
