The production, which had previously been scheduled through July 23, will now continue through Aug. 8.
This engagement follows a five-week run at the Barrow Street Theatre that began in May.
Directed by Rebecca A. Trent, Colin Quinn Unconstitutional addresses 226 years of American Constitutional calamities in 70 minutes.
The show will also tour, starting in the 13 original American colonies, sometime in the fall.
Quinn began his career in comedy clubs and has been seen on television in "Remote Control," "Saturday Night Live" and "Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn." His film work includes "A Night at the Roxbury," "Comedian" and "Grown Ups."
Quinn's one-man show Sanctifying Grace began Off-Broadway and transferred to Broadway as Colin Quinn-An Irish Wake in 1998. His one-man show Colin Quinn Long Story Short, which played Broadway in 2010, received a Drama Desk nomination as well as an Emmy Award for the HBO broadcast of the play.
"It's always been my dream to collaborate with James Madison and Alexander Hamilton," Quinn said in a statement. "Finally. The time is now."
Colin Quinn Unconstitutional is presented by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Mike Lavoie. The show is also produced by Brian Stern, with set design by James Fauvell, costume design by Alexis Forte and lighting design by Sarah Lurie.
