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

This show was SO much fun. The acting was fantastic, set and costume were beautiful, and I laughed out loud several times (which is rare for me)! This is such an enjoyable event, but don't bring small kids- there's way too much silly innuendo!

Figaro must outwit the Count's lustful advances towards his fiance and when his plotting reveals several other sexual games, the night culminates in mistaken identities and deliciously funny farce. Ranjit Bolt pens this retelling of Beaumarchais' play made famous in opera form by Mozart.
