For 14 years, [American Blues Theatre] has treated Chicago audiences to a live 1940s radio broadcast. This incredible cast of eight recreates the entire town of Bedford Falls with Foley sound effects, an original score, and holiday carols. Critics call this “perfect Christmas theater” and “first-class holiday fare”. After each performance, milk and cookies are served by the cast.
