This fall the Citi Performing Arts Center, formerly known as the Wang Theater, is playing host to quite an eccentric group- ranging from comedians, folk stars, classical musicians and the cast of a Nick Jr. program.

Revamping the old observational humor about the absurdity of everyday life, Jerry Seinfeld’s new standup comedy routine is a mix of mainstream- with rants about relationships, marriage, having kids, American consumerism- and the original- ruthless neuroticism that we’ve come to know and love on Seinfeld.
