Pandora Productions Continues the 2018-2019 Season With MY BIG GAY ITALIAN CHRISTMAS
Kick off the holidays with craziness! Continuing the series by Anthony Wilkinson, Pandora Productions proudly presents MY BIG GAY ITALIAN CHRISTMAS. We've had a Wedding, a Funeral, a Mid-Life Crisis and now the insanity that is the Pinnunziato family comes a holiday installment. Pandora is thrilled to be the first theatre company in the country to present Mr. Wilkinson's work. Pandora will host the playwright during the run of his show in Louisville on Saturday, November 17th with a reception following the performance.
The follow up to the Big Gay Italian Trilogy, a Christmas show designed specifically for the holiday season. A bisexual triangle, political conversations gone spoiled, a variety of over the top characters and the snow storm of the century are just a few of the ingredients of this Big Gay Italian Christmas lasagna. Anthony, Angela and Aunt Toniann are present for the holiday gathering, as is Anthony's crazy sister Maria. You can also expect some new characters like Cousin Josephine, Victorio and Olivia Buccatini.
