Reservations & Info: 212.501.4751
Comic actor/impressionist Jason Grossman performs a live solo adaptation of Frank Capra's classic film, "It's a Wonderful Life." A minimal set and atmospheric lighting allow Grossman to create every scene in Bedford Falls, morphing through everyone from Annie to Zuzu. Highly recommended for IAWL fanatics, George Bailey's hardships (compromised dreams of youth, financial ruin and suicide) are explored intimately in this close-up rendition, as is the conclusion when Bailey discovers triumphantly the value of his life and his beloved community support. The endearing angel, Clarence, who Grossman portrays impeccably, illuminates these fast-paced scenes based on Capra's original camera angles.
Recommended for all ages, and excellent holiday fare, It's a Wonderful (One Man Show) Life is a lively, accurate yet inventive interpretation of the tale based on The Greatest Gift by Philip Van Doren Stern.
