“If you think staging “It’s a Wonderful Life,” everybody’s favorite Christmas movie, as a reading with sound effects would be an unpardonable sin, then you have forgotten the kind of theatrical magic Warwick’s Gamm Theatre is capable of.
The Gamm has taken Joe Landry’s stage adaptation of this beloved Frank Capra classic and come up with a perfect gift for the community, 90 minutes of memorable theater that will melt your heart.” Providence Journal Review
“Everything about the show truly works together to create an unforgettable experience that will make you feel like you’re seeing It’s a Wonderful Life for the first time. Making something so well-known and recognizable feel so fresh and new, making it this surprising and fun, is no small feat, and Gamm has pulled it of spectacularly.” Broadwayworld.com Review
