The production was true to the storey n the movie, while providing a great twist.
You have been transported to a radio studio in the 50's before the show even begins. Freddy Filmore, the host of the show, came out into the lobby getting people moving, after all the show will be on the air live in a few short minutes.
I was dubious at first as to how well this would work. After all I grew up watching TV, not listening to radio, but it worked wonderfully well.
The costumes, makeup and sets were perfect. The show was amazing, because just like radio shows of old, the audiace was transfixed on the action going on in our minds as we interpeted the word of the actors.
The storey plays so well in this format. Each actor plays provides several voices throughout the radio show and they do it very very well, with each voice very distinct for the other. If you closed your eyes you would still know exactly who was talking, just by the sound and not input from the dialoge.
It was fun to watch the foley artist provide all the sounds. The simple wallking on and off, doors opening and closing to even the weather.
The actor that played Baley, Jimmy Stewarts part, was so similar to him in appearance and especially voice that it was hard not imagine it wasn't Jimmy Stewart.
Don't worry about gettign bad seats, there aren't any. It is a small theater and seating was great.
Treat yourself to a show that is right up there with the Nutcracker when it comes to Christmas classics. You will remember this show for a long long time and that makes it such a great deal when you amortize the memories in with the experience you cannot go wrong, even if you have to pay double full price.
