It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

December 6th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” is a clever reworking of a classic favorite, presented on stage by the Berkshires own Shakespeare & Company.

Most of us have seen the classic Frank Capra Christmas film, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, and even those of us who haven’t know the basic storyline – a suicidal George Bailey discovers the value of his life, guided by a would-be angel named Clarence who is on a quest to earn his wings – so what’s exciting about revisiting that same, old story on stage?

Well, first of all, it’s being presented by the renowned Berkshire theater group Shakespeare & Company, who routinely present some of the best theater productions in the area. Secondly, this is not “It’s A Wonderful Life” but, rather, “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.”

What’s the difference?

Stockbridge, Massachusetts is like many small towns in the Berkshires: quiet, friendly, quaint, and so picturesque it looks like it could be right out of some Norman Rockwell painting.

Where Stockbridge differs is that it IS in a Norman Rockwell painting! Many of them, actually, but most famously in his “Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas.”
