It's a Wonderful Life
What: A richly heartwarming musical retelling of one of the great Christmas movies of all time, this new adaptation includes a full range of luminous tunes from the '20s, '30s and '40s (from the Gershwins to Ivor Novello and beyond). The soaring songs add a delightful extra layer to the family-friendly show but it's the story of George Bailey––the Bedford Falls good guy who thinks his life has been wasted––that still resonates most deeply. Prepare to laugh, cry and wish for your very own guardian angel.
