The story has been re-imagined as a live radio broadcast with all production details such as a myriad of sound effects on stage as part of the broadcast adding to the interactive feel of the piece, with plenty of studio and audience participation included.

Five actors bring more than 50 characters to life in a production set on Christmas Eve in 1946 New York, the same year as the original movie was made and released.

The script adapted by Joe Landry is based on the actual screenplay of the film, written by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra and Jo Swerling.
