Ocean Casino Resort presents "My Big Gay Italian Christmas"

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- Hold on to your cannoli's and get ready for a snowy ride! My Big Gay Italian Christmas by Anthony J. Wilkinson is coming to Ocean Casino Resort's Ovation Hall on Saturday, December 16, 2023 at 8:00pm.

Over-the-top characters, a bisexual love triangle and heated political conversations all come to a head when a snowstorm forces the Pinnunziato family indoors this holiday season. Fan favorite characters Anthony Pinnunziato and Aunt Toniann are just a few of the ingredients in this Big Gay Italian Christmas lasagna.

Tickets start at $49 and are available for purchase online.

A born and raised New York native, Anthony J. Wilkinson is a graduate of NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences for English and Creative Writing. He started his career as an Intern Writer at ABC Daytime’s One Life To Live in 1996 and during his fourteen years there he worked his way up to the position of Associate Director. While in that position he earned three Daytime Emmy Awards and was a four-time recipient of the Directors Guild of America Award. He is the writer and creator behind the franchise that includes My Big Gay Italian Wedding, My Big Gay Italian Funeral, and My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis plays.
