Jerry Seinfeld, Hurricane Sandy, NYCB Theater
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld today announced that he has added a December 19th performance in Long Island to his touring schedule, and that he will donate all of his income from that show, as well as his upcoming performances in Brooklyn and Staten Island, to local organizations providing relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The newly-added show will be on December 19th, at the NYCB Theater in Westbury, Long Island. Seinfeld, along with Colin Quinn, will be donating 100% of the proceeds from that show, in addition to previously-sold-out performances at the Walt Whitman Theater in Brooklyn (November 8th) and at the St. George Theater in Staten Island (December 6th) to local relief organizations.
“I grew up on Long Island, and New York City is home,” said Seinfeld. “This is a tough time for this area, and we're just glad to be able to help in the recovery.”
Tickets for the 7:00 pm performance in Long Island will go on sale Friday, November 30th. Additional ticketing information will be announced soon.
