EXCLUSIVE: Colin Quinn has announced a new stage show – his seventh – and an opening night. Colin Quinn: Small Talk will play the Lucille Lortel Theatre Off Broadway beginning January 6 with an official opening scheduled for January 23.

The limited engagement runs through February 11. Written by and starring Quinn, Colin Quinn: Small Talk will be produced by Mike Lavoie & Carlee Briglia and Brian Stern. Directing will be James Fauvell, reteaming with Quinn after the comic’s Red State Blue State.
