Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s leading professional theatre, presents the holiday favorite It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Transforming its new theatre space into a 1940’s radio studio, the audience is transported to the golden age of radio, as cast members from radio station WMST perform Frank Capra’s classic holiday tale of individualism, optimism and community.
The cast includes Graydon Long (Broadway: The Audience), Joel van Liew (Public Theatre: Well), Matthew Bittner (La Jolla Playhouse: Up Here), Michelle David (Off-B’way: 40 Weeks), Patrick Massey (Off-B’way: Hounds of War), and Maggie Weston (MST Broadway Cabaret). The production is directed by MST Associate Artistic Director Mark Cirnigliaro.
MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor says of the revival, “We are thrilled to bring back this production to celebrate the holidays in our brand new theatre. Our audiences having been asking us to revive this show for years so they can return to their tradition of bringing their families and loved ones to MST for this holiday treat. In this current age of cynicism in America, we are so happy to bring back a production that affirms who we can be as a community.”
Tickets are $30 • $18 students and seniors.
