It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
Originally conceived by Chicago’s American Theater Company, It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play reimagines the Jimmy Stewart iconic holiday classic as a 1940s broadcast streaming into living rooms around the country. The story centers around George Bailey, a man who has sacrificed dreams of traveling the world to help the people around him—especially his brother and the impoverished citizens of the town. On Christmas Eve, facing the potential bankruptcy of his Building and Loan company—an event George believes to confirm he’s wasted his life—he plans to jump off a bridge to his death. But before he can, his guardian angel, Clarence, stops him and shows him the lives he’s touched and how different his town would be had he never been born.
Transforming the stage into a radio studio, six actors bring the story to life by portraying dozens of characters and recreating the sound effects, such as blowing wind, splashing water, car horns, and train whistles. The resulting show loses none of the original’s tenderness, with the Chicago Tribune declaring it “a well-loved tale told with style, charm and a heart so big it could burst the ribcages of the harshest Grinch.”<p>
