It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play


nhance your Christmas Season of 1946 by joining us for a live radio broadcast, as WBFR’s “Playhouse of the Air” presents the holiday classic, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. A small ensemble of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage to tell the story of George Bailey, a small town businessman who runs the Savings and Loan and keeps townspeople out of the clutches of banker Henry F. Potter, the richest – and meanest – man in Bedford Falls.

Joe Landry's plays have been produced across the country and internationally, and include It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, Reefer Madness, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play, Eve & Co., Beautiful, Hollywood Babylon, and Numb. Mr. Landry attended Playwright's Horizons/NYU, founded Second Guess Theatre Company in Connecticut and is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.

"One of the best holiday shows around. This is a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption." 

Mary Houlihan, Chicago Sun-Times


"A fresh theatrical context that creates just the right kind of retro warmth. If you cry every time you see the movie, you'll be blubbering away right on cue...Guaranteed."
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
