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

A movie come alive on stage, in Shakespearean English (mostly). Loved it. The actors were great, the set changes were fun and efficient, the script was funny and tight, with lots of little irreverent winks to the Bard. Hubby and I are still snickering like fools at some of the lines days later. We especially liked the actor that played Fredo+ (Thurs night). Fun!
First time seeing Commedia Beauregard, and we appreciated the well-acted professionalism and entertainment. These guys are serious about their craft. Haha, they have something called "Klingon Christmas", will see that!

Although there wasn't quite as much Shakespearean language as their production of Pulp Fiction this was still a clever presentation. If you haven't seen the movie in awhile do so before attending in order to easily follow the story.
