Geoffrey Nauffts' Tony-nominated Next Fall explores the tension between sexual orientation and religious faith with humor and heartbreak. Following a terrible car crash, Adam, an atheist, finds himself sharing a hospital room with the god-fearing parents of his comatose lover Luke. As the couple's relationship unfolds through a series of tender, often hilarious flashbacks, it becomes apparent in the present day that Luke's family is unaware of both their son's homosexuality and the man he has spent the last five years of his life with. Smart, sensitive and immensely appealing, Next Fall is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of modern love. 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.
