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

In Impressionism, it's not that every colour manages to find its way between neat lines, it's that you understand the feeling of colour, and the memory of colour. And such is the case of Pinter's Old Times in Remy Bumppo's spellbinding production. The fiction created in memory not only takes artistic license, but it sometimes allows to create self-made myths and false characterizations. This exceptional production questions, articulates and haunts.
<p>Directed by James Bohnen
Featuring Artistic Associates Linda Gillum and Nick Sandys
Twenty years is a long time to be married. You know each other intimately; the relationship is solid. Enter an old roommate from the distant past. A daring game of competing memories begins and suddenly everything is at risk. This classic play is by the late Nobel Prize-winning master Harold Pinter.</p>
