Comic actor/impressionist Jason Grossman performs a solo version of Frank Capra's classic film, "It's a Wonderful Life." Antics, choreography and just the right touch of schizophrenia pay homage to the film while creating a heart-warming story about a man who wishes he'd never been born. Directed and adapted by Sharon Fogarty with lighting design by David Alan Comstock.
