51/52: West Seattle Arts West: Wonderful Life

Last Saturday night, Brian and I attended the Arts West Christmas production, Wonderful Life.  It's getting rave reviews!

George Bailey's struggle to grasp why life is worth living finds a fresh voice in this enchanting one-person retelling of Frank Capra's classic film It's a Wonderful Life.


This play, penned by Helen Pafumi and Jason Lott introduces the audience to the residents of Bedford Falls, NY on a fateful Christmas Eve 1945.  Wonderful Life is a heart warming holiday story and this adaptation is a fascinating combination of both creativity and inspiration.

Although we have seen it before, Wonderful Life is the perfect Christmas performance and everything Arts West does is so well done and enjoyable for a community theater.

Just like last year, we decided to head over to the Matador for cocktails and dinner, but this time we had an early pre-theater dinner before the show.

Just another holiday tradition that we really look forward to every year!

Do you have a holiday tradition?  Leave me a comment below and let me know the one thing you look forward to every year.
