About this show

From the original director and ensemble that brought this holiday tradition to Chicago since 2002, the American Blues family takes you back to a 1940s radio broadcast of Frank Capra's holiday classic—It's a Wonderful Life (based on the short story "The Greatest Gift" by Philip Van Doren Stern) with live Foley sound effects, an original score and a critically acclaimed cast of eight that bring the entire town of Bedford Falls to life. For the first time, this production will be at the Greenhouse Theater Center on a new set created especially for the mainstage. Critics called this production "perfect Christmas theater" and "first-class holiday fare."
