From New Village Arts:
The sold-out 2021 musical sensation, 1222 Oceanfront: A Black Family Christmas, returns to New Village Arts this holiday season as a concert! Featuring soulful riffs, rousing spirituals, an eclectic and lovable cast of characters, and a heaping helping of seasonal cheer, 1222 Oceanfront is a celebration of Black culture, family, and understanding…with a dash of Christmas drama. It reminds us that the holiday spirit is powerful, bringing us together in love, song, and joy.

Written by Dea Hurston
Directed by Jacole Kitchen
Created and devised by Frankie Alicea-Ford, Kevin "Blax" Burroughs, Milena (Sellers) Phillips, Dea Hurston
