The man has range, that's for certain. In this re-imaging of the Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life, actor James Leaming steps into George Bailey's shoes, doing a damn good impression of Jimmy Stewart in the iconic role. Then Leaming performs as Mr. Potter, the cranky businessman. Then he dresses up as Mary, Clarence the Angel, and every other person in Bedford Falls. Written by Steve Murray and directed by Peter Amster, This Wonderful Life takes the familiar story revolving around a few dozen unique characters and plops it all down on one man. And Leaming handles it quite brilliantly. Playing all month, you have until Christmas Eve to see this unbelievable one-man performance. Here's to quick wardrobe changes!
