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 holiday classic as an old-timey 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 would 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, a small ensemble of actors brings the story to life by portraying dozens of characters and mimicking the sounds of blowing wind, splashing water, and falling snowflakes.<p>

Tennessee Shakespeare Company

Theater should inspire wonderment. That’s the view at Tennessee Shakespeare Company, an artistic organization dedicated to bringing new life to William Shakespeare’s words. Each of its productions aims to burrow beneath the play’s familiar surface, finding deeper explorations into psychology, government, and philosophy. This approach brings new life to the timeless works—TSC’s Macbeth, for instance, highlighted the civilian cost of civil war, while an all-female Julius Caesar embodied “a bold new way to look at honor, womanhood, and power,” according to The Commercial Appeal. That same sense of exploration is extended to contemporary pieces. Once a year, the company members hang up their iambic pentameters to produce the Southern Exposure festival featuring new works from the region.
