Synopsis:
With an uplifting story spanning over 50 years in the life of its title character, Carmela D'Angelo Vega (a.k.a. Nona), "Nona's Christmas Rose" follows an aspiring New York City musical hopeful whose journey and talents become both impacted and dictated by young love, bitter wars, family obligations, inconsolable grief, and spiritual rebirth. As in all lives, Nona's story is not merely hers alone but shaped and shared with important players, including her heroic young lover Tommy, dutiful husband Alejandro, grounded son Frank, spirited granddaughter Arianna, humorous talent agent Moesha, spiritual guide and best friend Rev. Rose...and many others. Director states: "Annemarie St. Michael's "Nona's Christmas Rose" presents audiences with a fine and layered tapestry never before seen on-stage with a unique message of universal love, peace, and--most importantly--forgiveness...all wrapped in an amazing and unforgettable holiday score."
