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 romantic journey of passion, pathos and serenity, The Bed chronicles the marriage of Joe and Sara Isaia. The story begins in 1983 on their wedding night, in a New York apartment, and continues through childbirth, accomplishments and disappointments, disharmony and separation, compromise and reconciliation, to the year 2045. It is a modern-day fable not so much of making decisions, but of decisions made right.
This two-act play entertains the audience by uniquely and beautifully depicting the stages of a relationship between this man and woman over a lifetime. The Bed reveals that commonalities exist among couples throughout the world—past, present and future—who commit to and honor a contract of marriage.
The Bed was first produced on January 6, 2006, in San Juan Capistrano, California, at the Camino Real Playhouse. The play won First Prize in the American Theatre Co-op 2003 Full Length Playwriting Contest, Second Prize for the 2006 Midwestern Association of Community Playhouses Full Length Play Competition and was a finalist in Another Chicago Theatre Company 2004 Last Play Standing Competition.
