It's A Wonderful Life, a Musical
It’s a Wonderful Life, a Kaufman and Perri Musical, presents a current-day version of the Christmas classic augmented with 20 original song and dance numbers. The songs are a mixture of popular music styles including gospel, reggae, rock, love ballads and show tunes designed to fit with the diverse cast of angels and mortals. The play is humorous and engaging even as it develops characters and themes more in step with current tastes and dramatic sensibilities. The musical features larger roles for both female and African-American actors while completely shedding its WW II timeframe and dated dialogue — steps designed to enhance the appeal of this beloved story for the current generation of theatergoers.
