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.

While the acting was justifiably over the top for the genre it seemed like sometimes the actors weren't actually having a conversation. Like having a conversation where someone is just waiting their turn to talk, they weren't reacting to the actual lines that were said before them but just waiting for their cue to overact. Overall I'm still glad I went, the play was worth some laughs and true to it's form contained plenty of B Movie schlock: the villainous matron, broomsticks, racism and lots of insinuated girl on girl.
STAGEStheatre presents the B-movie spoof, Women Behind Bars, written by Tom Eyen. David Campos, director of STAGES' brilliant premiere last year, Rattlers, returns and holds all the keys as the ultimate warden of this cast filled with bad girls, and a couple bad boys.
Women Behind Bars tells the woeful tale of innocent Mary Eleanor who lands in the Women's House of Detention in Greenwich Village after being framed. Poor Mary Eleanor faces sadism and the comedic horror that can only be found in a truly bad movie. They're all innocent, just ask 'em.
