This has been a holiday tradition in Chicago since 2002, and this year's performance once again features the original director and ensemble that have warmed hearts for many holiday seasons. Complete with live sound effects, an original score and a cast of eight wonderful actors who bring the typical small town of Bedford Falls to life on stage, It's a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago! recreates a 1940s-era radio broadcast of the heartwarming tale of troubled George Bailey's Christmas Eve journey through his life history. The production includes holiday carols, live commercials from actual local sponsors, telegrams from the audience read on stage and a "Soldier Spotlight," which honors one serviceman or servicewoman during each performance. After the show, the entire audience is invited to join the cast and crew for milk and cookies. Learn More

This is a fresh and sparkling production of "A Doll's House." Positioning the story in the 1960's is brilliant. It makes a venerable play more relevant than ever. Kate Cares' performance as Nora is tonally perfect in every phase of the play.

A Doll’s House
by Henrik Ibsen
directed by ICT Artistic Director Chris Maher
SAC-RI-FICE (noun): destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else.
New York City, 1962. As America hovers on the cusp of a second-wave feminist movement whose effects are felt to this day, Nora Helmer is a woman lost. Her entire life, Nora has defined herself by what she is to others-daughter, mother, wife, friend. Now she lives in a beautiful home with a husband and children who adore her, yet often feel like strangers. But after a dark secret from the past comes back to haunt her, Nora is finally forced to face the underlying realities of her carefully constructed existence.
Henrik Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright and director who lived from 1828-1906.
