George Bailey is considering jumping off a bridge and ending it all. Until his guardian angel turns up and shows him what life would be like if he had never been born. It's a Wonderful Life is considered one of the top classic American movies of all time, but the version being presented at Music Theatre of Connecticut's MainStage Studio Theatre repurposes the tale as a radio play that will be acted out live on stage as if it was being broadcast in the 1940s.
