The producer Bill Kenwright turned to McCartney to compose the musical after he acquired the rights to the film, and McCartney faced the challenge.

In It & # 39; s a Wonderful Life we follow the life of George Bailey, a really nice guy who does everything he can to help the people of his small town Bedford Falls. As good as a guy like George is, he's still going through tough times and is very close to suicide. He is rescued at the last minute by his guardian angel Clarence, who then shows George what Bedford Falls would look like if he had never been born. The result is a scary nightmare in which everyone is drunk, mean and violent. A bit like New Jersey.
McCartney collaborated on the lyrics with Lee Hall, who also writes the book of the musical. The musical It's a Wonderful Life will be premiered sometime in the year 2020 .
