A whimsically heartfelt fable about love and death, this play by Philip Dawkins follows the destinies of the Fail family in 1928 Chicago. Free-spirited Nelly, tomboy Jenny June and the responsible Gerty are the daughters of immigrant clock-makers, promising young women ready to strike out on their own. Their fates change after they meet a sweetly sincere suitor, Mortimer, and then their makers, one after the other, in a series of unfortunate events. This funny, wise play has won kudos from critics for its delightful humor and moving message. Learn More

A brilliant tour de force!!!! Absolutely loved loved loved this performance. This actor is phenomenal - sure it's a wonderful life is a familiar story and you have to be living underneath a rock no to know it - but the way this actor seamlessly moved in and out of the key characters was truly a sight to behold. This is a holiday classic for sure and definitely not to be missed! Thanks for another terrific evening out! And as an FYI - I have seen two other performances at this venue, Birds of a Feather and The Clockmaker and each has been outstanding. Thanks again!
The Hub kicks off the mainstage season just in time for the holidays with a world premiere and new take on a seasonal classic. Wonderful Life is based on It’s a Wonderful Life_, produced and directed by Frank Capra. The Hub’s Artistic Director, Helen Pafumi, and talented actor and Hub favorite, Jason Lott (_The Pavilion and Summer Cabaret), have co-adapted the classic to create a fun new version for the stage. Every holiday season, we follow George Bailey through highs and lows as he struggles to understand his own worth and ultimately finds that life is worth living. The Hub’s new telling features Jason Lott playing all the roles necessary to bring this Christmas tale to life. This exciting and demanding one-person show is sure to delight audiences of all ages this holiday season.
