None. Take care of that before you arrive, and bring a bottle of water if you think you'll need it.

Small theatre with graduated (stadium style) seating, so everyone has a good line of sight.

Description

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.
