Coney Island Christmas

Dec. 1-3 & 8-10, 2023

By Donald Marguiles
Directed by Kim Riley

Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Marguiles weaves together nostalgia, music, and merriment in the world premier of this new seasonal classic. A holiday show for people of all ages and all faiths, Coney Island Christmas introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who (much to her immigrant parents' exasperation) is cast as Jesus in the school's Christmas pageant. As Shirley, now much older, recounts the memorable story to her great-granddaughter, the play captures a timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holidays.
