About Coney Island Christmas

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. 

​Based loosely on the Grace Paley short story “The Loudest Voice.” The play tells the story of a young Jewish girl in 1935 Brooklyn who is chosen to play the part of Jesus Christ in her school’s Christmas pageant much to her parent’s dismay.

How everyone comes together to respect their own and each other’s observances forms the basis for the play.
