"Coney Island Christmas" return starts a new tradition
Last Season's CenterStage hit play: "Coney Island Christmas" is returning for a limited run this December. The story is set in 1930s NYC and tells of young Shirley, a Jewish girls cast to play Jesus in her school's Christmas play. We figure if Geva can do "A Christmas Carol" every year, we can have a holiday tradition of our own!
CONEY returns for one weekend only, December 15-18.
