THE CHICAGO ORIGINAL
Based on the film by: Frank Capra
Directed by: Gwendolyn Whiteside*
Music direction by: Michael Mahler*
For 16 years, the American Blues Ensemble has treated Chicago audiences to a live 1940s radio broadcast. The incredible cast recreates the entire town of Bedford Falls with Foley sound effects, an original score, and holiday carols. Critics call this “perfect Christmas theater” and “first-class holiday fare”. After each performance, milk and cookies are served by the cast.
