PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Theatre On Main started a new holiday tradition last year with our production of It's A Wonderful Life. This faithful adaptation of Frank Capra's beloved movie is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose guardian angel has to descent on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that his life has been, after all, a wonderful life.

Getting wings
by MrPurple
Friday, December 19, 2008
2.5
Much of what brought my low score (I guess if it were agrad that would be like a C-??) is that many of the endearing scenes we love from the movie were cut. So my biggest complaint is a script issue. For example: Even though ZuZu references "an angel gets it's wings every time a bell rings"-It isn't mentioned by Clarence at all to set it up! And ZuZu's petals are not mentioned!Arrghhh. Ms. Sams is excellent and charming as Mary, the highlite of the show. Close on her tells was Micheal Fosse who played George with GREAT Sincerity. Would have like to see a bit more charisma there. Ron Connell does a good Clarence, though not as blustery as in the film. The rest of the cast is adequate. Ms. Coe does an okay job of setting up some nice scenes. But limited costumes and low energy reoccur often in the show. I think most families would like it. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I enjoyed the production I saw of IAWL last Sunday the 7th. It goes on a couple of more weekends and is worth the trip if you do not live in Acworth. Good times for all!! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
