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

I love this theater. Every seat has a good view and the acting is always superb. The play istelf was very enlightening and thought provoking. For those of you thinking this is a Rock N Roll musical, please read about the play before attending.

This extraordinary theatrical event, nominated for four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards, makes its South Bay Premiere in a uniquely intimate production at The Stage. It’s August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling in to Prague. Jan, a Czech student, lives for rock music; Max, an English professor, lives for Communism; and Esme, the flower child, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, The Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall. Stoppard’s sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which, love remains — and so does rock ’n’ roll.
