A young Jewish girl who's cast -- much to her immigrant parents' dismay -- as Jesus in her school's Christmas pageant is at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies' Coney Island Christmas. A seasonal story for people of all ages and faiths, Coney Island Christmas weaves together nostalgia, music and merriment as the girl, many decades later, recounts this memorable bit of autobiography to her great-granddaughter. Kit Wilder directs this timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holidays. Learn More

I didn't know the story and expected something more interesting. The story itself is pretty boring. The actors were great, except the ending (he shouldn't wipe his hands on the stage it brokel know what I'm taling about if you will see the play).
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Brian Friel
Hedda returns from her honeymoon dissatisfied, anticipating a life of tedious convention. Aided and abetted by her predatory confidante, Judge Brack, she begins to manipulate the fates of those around her to devastating effect. Brian Friel’s new version – taking liberties that only a master playwright might – invests Ibsen’s social realist original with psychological truth, presenting Hedda’s gradual mental breakdown as the inevitable consequence of an entirely inflexible social structure.
