Nov 17 - Dec 17, 2017

By Donald Margulies
Directed by Elena Giannetti

Coney Island Christmas introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who, much to her immigrant mother’s 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 audience is treated to an enchanting, timeless tale of what it means to discover our own holiday traditions.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music, and merriment in this new seasonal classic for people of all ages and all faiths.

Tickets range from $26-30. Please visit the Ticket Information page for more details. School Day Matinees are available for this production. Please visit our School Day Matinees page to complete a reservation. For a preview of what to expect from the show, please visit our What Audiences Should Know guide. NoteAs a courtesy to our patrons, children under the age of 5 will not be admitted.
