Joe Landry's holiday favorite puts Frank Capra's film classic It's a Wonderful Life on stage as a 1940s radio broadcast. It's December 24, 1946, in Studio A at WSTG Radio, and a cast of actors goes live on-air portraying all the memorable characters -- from down-on-his-luck do-gooder George Bailey, who's considering ending his life one desperate Christmas Eve, to the blundering guardian angel sent to Earth to show George what the world would have been like without him. Treat the whole family to San Jose Stage Company's presentation of this beloved story. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- “It is tight, tense and emotionally true, and it portrays characters who actually seem part of the world that the rest of us live in.” --Time Magazine
A 2009 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, Neil LaBute's bristling new comedy puts a ferocious cap on a trilogy of plays that began with The Shape of Things and Fat Pig. America's obsession with physical beauty is confronted headlong in this brutal and exhilarating work, in which a slip of the tongue has a tsunami effect on man's relationships, romantic and otherwise. Simultaneously sentimental and uncompromising, Reasons To Be Pretty is a gorgeous play.
Featuring Halsey Varady, Robert Brewer*, Allison F. Rich and Will Springhorn Jr.*.
