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 is a great example of theatre ingenuity. The writing was clever, the staging brilliant and unexpected. We see a lot of theatre and this is one of our favorite new shows.
I was a little concerned when I learned that the director/choreographer also worked on Urinetown, because I thought he missed the marked with that show in a big way. But on this show, in this instance, he hit the nail on the head.
The events of two momentous evenings happen in the same space. As twenty-somethings John and Kat prepare themselves on the eve of their wedding, an older couple - Jack and Catherine - are on the brink of the decree absolute that will end their marriage. As Jack and Catherine look back and John and Kat look forward, it becomes evident that all is not what it first seemed. Are we watching two couples on one night? – or maybe it is one couple, on two nights separated by a decade. Two pivotal nights in the marriage that is crumbling before our eyes. The scenes interweave and echo through time, as the two storylines play out and each protagonist faces their own mountain to climb.
