STAGEStheatre invites you to kick off the holiday season with their presentation of Joe Landry's It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. This heartwarming classic is a show within a show. It's December 24, 1946 in Studio A at WSTG Radio, and a cast of actors is preparing to present It's a Wonderful Life live to the listening audience. With the help of only a pianist and a sound-effects artist, the ensemble re-enacts the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck when the banks crash, Bailey is at the end of his rope. He questions his purpose in life and considers ending it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. This 2013 production marks STAGEStheatre's fifth time producing this beloved holiday favorite. If you're looking for a December tradition to share with the family, this fits the bill perfectly.

FUN & NOBODY, written by Howard Korder and directed by Jeffrey Kieviet, is two connected One Acts that move from the very beginning. First Act follows two teens, Casper & Denny, on a crazy Thursday afternnoon that only ends on Friday morning. The dialogue is snappy and off-beat and Forest Orta & Adam Poynter own Korder's whacked-out, teen-angst, f-bombing dialogue, making their relationship feel real and awkward and funny and relatable. The highlight, though, is Act II, as Rick Kopp's Carl, seamlessly slides through a slow downward spiral after losing his job. I felt like a voyeaur watching him. It was deliciously uncomfortable to see how the world suddenly looked so warped and how it affected him differently than it used to when he was a working man. Pam Paulson nails it as his concerned wife, who still believes in him. She watches his breakdown with concern & support. You can feel even when they argue it's always coming from a place of love, making me believe he will get though this with her by his side... which only makes the ending that much more shocking and awesome and effing right-on. The eighties rock music is fun too.
