It’s A Wonderful Life: Live

Presented by Ravenswood Productions in special arrangement with Chicago’s American Blues Theater, It’s A Wonderful Life: Live reimagines the Jimmy Stewart holiday classic as an old-timey broadcast streaming into living rooms around the country. The story centers on George Bailey, a man who has sacrificed dreams of traveling the world to help the people around him—especially his brother and the citizens of his picturesque hometown, Bedford Falls. Despite his good deeds, however, he faces the potential bankruptcy of his Building and Loan Company on Christmas Eve, an event that leads him to believe he’s wasted his life. But before he can jump off a bridge to his death, 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. This unique spin on the film was originally directed by Marty Higginbotham in Chicago, where it’s since become a holiday staple of the Windy City. Now, he brings his vision to Birmingham, and it’s poised to become a staple in the South as well: Al.com has heralded it as “a nice addition to the Birmingham holiday landscape.”
