About the play:
Dorothy Black invites you to join her and her adult children for Christmas Eve dinner at 1222 Oceanfront. The festive evening features all of the Black family traditions including Italian food, dancing, singing and skits. The evening may also include a bit of drama, because, well it’s family. But seriously, how much drama can there be on Christmas Eve?

"1222 Oceanfront: A Black Family Christmas" features a joyous mix of original holiday songs with traditional carols re-imagined.

PREVIEWS: NOV. 19 – 26 OPENS: NOV. 27 RUNS: NOV. 28 – DEC. 26
