It’s a Wonderful Life when you pick up your discount tickets to this Chicago holiday tradition — performed as a live 1940s-era radio broadcast!
American Blues Theater presents a live radio-style performance of Frank Capra’s holiday masterpiece It’s a Wonderful Life on stage at Greenhouse Theater Center. This has been a holiday tradition in Chicago since 2002, warming hearts for many holiday seasons. Complete with live sound effects, an original score and a cast of eight wonderful actors who bring the typical small town of Bedford Falls to life, It’s a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago! re-creates a ’40s-era radio broadcast of the heartwarming tale of troubled George Bailey’s Christmas Eve journey through his life history. The production includes holiday carols, live commercials from actual local sponsors, telegrams from the audience read onstage and a “Soldier Spotlight,” which honors one serviceman or servicewoman during each performance. After the show, the entire audience is invited to join the cast and crew for milk and cookies.
