From the Frank Capra classic, based on the story short

“The Greatest Gift” by Philip Van Doren Stern

Directed by Marty Higginbotham

From the original director and Ensemble that bring this holiday tradition to Chicago since 2004. Join the American Blues family as we take you back to a 1940s radio broadcast of Frank Capra’s holiday classic—It’s a Wonderful Life with live Foley sound effects, an original score, and a stellar cast of eight that bring the entire town of Bedford Falls to life. From the moment you walk through the doors, you will be transported back to the Golden Age of Radio and experience the story of George Bailey like never before.
