American Blues Theater presents a live radio-style performance of Frank Capra's holiday masterpiece on stage at Greenhouse Theater Center. 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
Reviews & Ratings
The world according to David Ives is a very strange place indeed. His plays create a near perfect inspection of the English language – and of the audience’s aptitude for perplexity and joy. Ives’s characters are thrust into black holes called “Philadelphias,” where the simplest desires are uproariously frustrated. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to write no less a masterpiece than Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in an invented language in which “welcome” translates as “velcro” and “fraud” comes out as “freud.”
