Great, always great!! A touching story acted so well you do not even realize they are acting at all. This version of “It’s A Wonderful Life” is a must-see and has a permanent place on my calendar.

I love the Biograph and when I had the opportunity to see "It's a Wonderful Life" there I could not pass it up. The acting was splendid and the set well done to remind us of the time period of the story. This was a "preview" but you would never...continued

It's hard to believe but this show is better than ever. The players are truly into their roles and it takes you back to how things might have been in the 1940's. I like that because Christmas honors a child and I feel it is a time to enjoy and...continued

A new holiday tradition. Took our folks and they just LOVED it. Said it made them feel like they were back in their living room listening on the radio. My husband and I were amazed at the acting and the way they used the sound effects. Great job.

It took us back to the 40's! We actually felt like it was a real radio broadcast.

Excellent production. Everyone engaged as if we were there in 1944. Wonderful acting. If you're a fan at all of "It's a Wonderful Life" or Christmas, don't miss it.

This is a really well excellent show ... from the pre-show audience participation to the cookies and milk presented after the show.
The actors are really talented, pretending to be multiple characters.

This is the second time I have seen the...continued

Every year I introduce new friends and work colleagues to this show. It simply does not disappoint. American Blues Theater's production is sublime. They own this show. Don't settle for other versions. This is the ONE.

Don't miss it! A true holiday gem for Chicago. Attended with my 11 and 13 year old girl and boy and they both loved it. And at one point near the end, thought I detected my husband's eyes tearing up. Lots of singing and laughing as well. A...continued

An enjoyable holiday show. The reading of the radio play version of the film was quite well done but the execution of the "radio show" trappings around it were directed in a manner that was too cutsie by half even for a holiday show.
