MY BIG GAY ITALIAN CHRISTMAS to Open in Atlantic City for the Holidays
"My Big Gay Italian Christmas" is officially set to open this holiday season on December 2nd 8pm and December 3rd, 7pm 2017, at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City and will play in The Showroom.
The follow up to the Big Gay Italian Trilogy, (My Big Gay Italian Wedding, My Big Gay Italian Funeral, My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis) Wilkinson has created a Christmas show designed specifically to play 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." Said Wilkinson of what's to come in his next chapter as always loosely based on his own life. The three-time Daytime Emmy winner who is no stranger to the stage, was recently appointed as the Executive and Artistic Director of the new Avenel Arts Center scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
Fan favorite characters Anthony Pinnunziato (Wilkinson), Angela Pinnunziato (Gina Scarda) and Aunt Toniann (Debra Toscano) are present for the holiday gathering, as is Anthony's crazy sister Maria (Elena Barone). We can also expect some new characters like Cousin Josephine (Maryann Maisano), Victorio Buccatini (Mark Corallo) and Olivia Buccatini (Kim Pirrella). Special guest for opening night will be the Mayor of Woodbridge Township, John E. McCormac, who will be making a cameo appearance as Officer PatRick Gardner.
Presented by Bianco Productions, "My Big Gay Italian Christmas " will be directed by Anthony J. Wilkinson and Produced by Sonia Blangiardo and Teresa Anne Cicala. The show is under the General Management of 22Q Entertainment. A press after party will follow at the hotel immediately following the first performance on December 2nd.
