CONEY at the New Ohio adds a Sunday Show

CONEY at the New Ohio adds performance!

Due to popular ticket demand, Blue Coyote Theater Group announces that David Johnston's CONEY will have an additional performance on Sunday, November 18 at 2PM, which will now be its final performance. The remaining performance schedule for CONEY is Wednesday – Saturday at 8 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM.

With cold weather and the threat of gentrification looming, a group of Coney Island die-hards take to the boardwalk for one last summer fling. A panoramic tribute to, as one character puts it, a world that is “all going away," CONEY presents a diverse cast of twelve characters spanning in age from 13 to 73, including carnival barkers and freakshow stars eking out a living; working class friends looking back at a lifetime of courtships on the boardwalk; and a young couple with an obsession for the film The Warriors on a touching first date.  Between the Sideshows at the Sea Shore, the Wonder Wheel, Nathan’s Hot Dogs and Shoot the Freak, dreams are conjured and hopes are dashed in acclaimed playwright David Johnston's love letter to America’s original national playground.

Performances are at The New Ohio (the Archive Building at 154 Christopher Street, between Greenwich Street and Washington Street in the West Village). Tickets are $25 and are available by calling SmartTix at 212-868-4444 or online at For more information, visit ###
