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
Quotes & Highlights
- American Theatre Critics Association Award Winner
- !"A bold, risky melange ... terrifically moving!" --New York Times
A satirical and controversial examination of the timeless quest for beauty - and its costs. An 18th century Chinese woman, a tightly-corseted Victorian lady, and a much-augmented Jersey gal meet in a modern day doctor's office, each confronting the forces that led them there. This always-lively dark comedy is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics with a good dose of resilience and humor.
Written by Lisa Loomer
Directed by Kit Wilder and Lisa Mallette
