America's favorite holiday story, "It's a Wonderful Life", is taking the stage in Scottsdale. Alone and defeated, George Bailey stands on the bridge that overlooks his beloved Bedford Falls, convinced himself that his life and his work have been for nothing. He's about to end it all when he's visited by a guardian angel who will show him what life would have been like without him. This heartwarming story about the importance of ordinary acts of kindness and decency has become a beloved holiday tradition.
Based on the 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz franchise has seen an absurd number of adaptations, off-brand sequels and spin-offs. The classic tale of a Kansas girl named Dorothy and her adventure into the land of wicked witches, flying monkeys and talking scarecrows has captivated children and adults alike for over a century. People are usually most familiar with the 1939 film version, but The Wizard of Oz was performed as a live musical as early as 1902, when it was adapted for the stage by Baum himself.
Perhaps best known as the beloved 1950 Jimmie Stewart film, "Harvey" was originally a Pulitzer Prize-winning play -- and now's your chance to see it live like it all started. Good old Elwood P. Dowd has a best friend named Harvey. Elwood takes Harvey with him everywhere he goes, introducing him to folks and ordering him drinks at their favorite local bar. Yes, Harvey and Elwood are very good friends indeed. It's just that Harvey happens to be an imaginary six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit. Based on Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Actor's Cafe Productions' "Harvey" is the subtly hilarious story of a lovable gentleman, his invisible best friend and the exasperated family members who want to wash their hands of the whole oddball situation.
