About this show

An enchanting cousin of Our Town, this adaptation of Thornton Wilder's semi-autobiographical novel sparkles with wit, intelligence, and humanity. Seeking a life-changing adventure in 1926 New England, a young teacher finds his Model T broken down in elegant Newport, Rhode Island. Working odd jobs for the wealthy, he finds purpose in the prosaic, inadvertently changing the lives of everyone he meets. Wilder's wry humor and folksy philosophy highlight this celebration of the American spirit.
