Instead of the Kings of Comedy, five SoCal comics have gotten together and dubbed themselves the Assistant Regional Managers of the genre. They've also created this new, one-of-a-kind show that links their individual stand-up acts with an overarching narrative designed to include the audience. This talented performing quintet includes Beau McFarland, Peter Marr, Anne-Marie Symons, Andrew Long and Rick Torres, all of whom have performed at local comedy clubs, and boast a variety of writing, acting and directing credits. Not all members appear on all dates, and shows frequently feature guest performers, so check out the full event description for upcoming lineups. Learn More

This was such a fun experience, to see my favorite film performed live as an old-time radio broadcast! All the performers were top-notch and very good in their (sometimes multiples) roles, with a special shout-out to the onstage sound effects guy who had his hands full juggling glasses, cans, doors, telephones, and the occasional paper airplane.
A familiarity with the story is probably helpful, as I overheard a few younger folks admit they didn't quite understand the action during some moments of the show.
This was my 2nd time seeing a show at STAGEStheater, and I will definitely be back for more.
The American Film Institute (AFI) selected It’s a Wonderful Life as its “Most Inspiring Movie of All Time” in a 2006 “100 Years—100 Cheers” retrospective, and Landry’s radio play adaptation has received equally-admiring reviews in many cities across the country. The classic tale of family, friendship and the power of community in the face of financial hard times is a must-see during the holiday season.
