Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music and merriment in 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.
