**** Highly Recommended **** Take your family on a nostalgic trip into the past with American Blues Theater’s 16th annual production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago!” in their new venue, Stage 773. You ‘ll join a ‘live radio’ audience with a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and watch a talented cast bring Bedford Park to life, commercials and all! The stage might be a little larger; the décor a little more festive; but it’s still the show Chicagoans have grown to love.
