TheatreWorks' production of "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" closed out its in-person performances on Dec. 26, but there are actually still more chances to see the show. The play may be set at a 1940s radio station, but it's available to audiences over 21st-century "airwaves" — aka video on demand — for virtual viewing which has just been extended through Jan. 9.
The touching tale of how everyman George Bailey learns his true impact on the lives of his friends, family and neighbors is still at the center of the show, but this adaptation of the classic holiday film reimagines the uplifting story as told via a 1940s radio play. Cast members play multiple roles and create the foley-style sound effects that once brought extra realism to radio productions.
