Closing Credits: An Evening with Frank Capra

“A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something,” said Frank Capra, a man who had more than a few monumental hunches of his own. Across a filmography that defined American cinema of the 1930s and ’40s, the writer/director’s creative impulses sent Mr. Smith to Washington, rescued George Bailey from death, played Cupid to Cobert and Gable in It Happened One Night, and even boosted American morale with the Why We Fight film series during World War II. 

Closing Credits: An Evening with Frank Capra, a world-premiere play from George Morgan and Loren Masters, focuses not just on these pictures, but on the genius himself. In a rags-to-riches-to-rags tale that makes Horatio Alger look like a slouch, audiences meet the real Capra (with interjections from real-life characters such as Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, and Capra’s mother), and discover that while he may have been a hero in his own way, he was no Mr. Smith. Even when he ascends from a con man to genius filmmaker, he eventually falls from Hollywood grace in the final stages of his career. It’s a life that wasn’t always wonderful, but has the same drama, laughter, and pathos as one of his films.

This theater is very nice. I love seeing shows here. The seating is very nice. This place has a full bar inside. Theater is beautiful inside and very intricate and vintage looking. I feel like I'm at the Phantages when I'm in the theater. I'm so glad I got tickets from Groupon! The show was great. The actors and actresses were great performers. It was surprising to me, I wasn't sure what to expect of the show. But I haven't been disappointed, yet, when I come here for shows.
