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

Anxious about the state of his relationship, Vincent impulsively stands up a date with his longtime girlfriend. He packs a suitcase full of his grandparents' love letters and hops on a plane from Chicago to Paris - the very city where his grandparents lived and fell in love, embarking on a journey to find out if the love he imagines is possible. LiveWire is proud to present the Chicago premiere of this charming and theatrical piece by Naperville native Mat Smart.
