The Critics Loved IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY!
The holidays start next week at the Undercroft Theatre with a revival of our cleverly theatrical retelling of the beloved film’s story. And the reviews from its initial run made it a smash!
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY
adapted by Joe Landry
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play transports us back to Christmas Eve, 1946; we are to be the live studio audience for a performance of a radio play based on a Frank Capra film that was not yet a seasonal classic: It’s a Wonderful Life… fans of WAMU’s “The Big Broadcast” will be delighted… It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play hits all the right notes… the perfect way to kick off the Christmas Season with a shot of heartfelt nostalgia.”
Jessica Pearson, DC Theatre Scene
“Steven Carpenter wizards up audibles to accompany the storytelling… Director Laura Giannarelli’s production imagines that the radio drama emanates from a Washington station… complete with old-fashioned microphones, light-up “Applause” signs and fading World War II posters tacked to a bulletin board… Standing at the microphones with scripts in hand, the actors animatedly give voice to the story… please cue the sound of footsteps strolling down memory lane.”
Celia Wren, The Washington Post
