How was your experience?
As a big fan of the movie, I expected I would enjoy a "radio play" of It's A Wonderful Life, but would not be as moved as I always am by the movie. Was I wrong! I found myself so engaged by the players in this production that I was teary more often than for the movie! The actors were all excellent, particularly John Mohrlein who has a bit of a Jekyll-Hyde thing going, taking on the roles of both Clarence and Mr. Potter, as well as a few other smaller parts. He has the remarkable ability to make his reading of each character so uniquely distinct that it's quite clear who is speaking even when the different characters have contiguous lines. The rest of the cast deserves similar kudos. I would highly recommend this production to everyone.
