"This Wonderful Life": A Live One-Man "It's A Wonderful Life"
THIS WONDERFUL LIFE
By Steve Murray
Directed & Performed by Doug Schutte
Bard Theatre Artistic Director Doug Schutte brings back this hilariously touching stage adaptation of the iconic holiday film "It's a Wonderful Life" for one more holiday season. George Bailey, Clarence, Mr. Potter, and the gang come to life as a single actor creates a heartwarming story about the effect one hardworking man's life has on the people around him.
CRITICS RAVED ABOUT LAST YEAR'S PRODUCTION:
"Definitely what the season calls for" -Arts Louisville
"Schutte plays it all with such unabashed joy and skill." -Arts Louisville
"Schutte directs and performs dozens of characters for nearly an hour and a half, exhaustively running around the stage and changing persona and voice to great effect... Jimmy Stewart and Lionel Barrymore are particularly spot-on." -Arts L
"like a highly-energetic, charismatic friend telling you about their favorite movie." -LEO
"I’ll admit, I went into this show not particularly a fan of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Schutte’s depiction of George Bailey, despite all the narrative throws at him and how it rings true today, makes me want to give the movie another chance." -LEO
