For its 13th annual holiday show, Seattle Radio Theatre performs the Lux Radio Theater version of I’ll Be Seeing You as originally broadcast on Christmas Eve 1945. It’s an all-ages tear-jerker of a holiday production—the original film starred Joseph Cotten and Ginger Rogers—about a troubled WWII veteran and a woman wrongly convicted of murder. Both on furloughs (he from a hospital; she from prison) when they meet aboard a train right before Christmas, they spend the holidays together with her family, each hiding the truth from each other—until it all boils over. The all-star cast of Northwest favorites includes Tracey Conway, Steve Wilson, Pat Cashman, Jim Dever, John Maynard, Lee Callahan, Dolores Rogers, and Chris Topping, with songs by Jacqueline Alves, sound effects by Curtis Takahashi, and Rob Jones as music director and pianist. AM 1090 KPTK broadcasts the performance live. Presented by Town Hall and Seattle Radio Theatre.
