I Love Lucy: Live on Stage is a brand-new hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history! It is live on stage and in color for the very first time!
It’s 1952 and you are a member of the studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I Love Lucy episodes. Imagine stepping back in time onto the Desilu Playhouse soundstage where a charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950s hi-fidelity technology and this brand-new thing called “television.” The episodes begin and you witness, firsthand, the side-splitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardo’s New York apartment and thrill to the Cuban sounds of “The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra” at the famed Tropicana Nightclub. In-between scenes? The Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles of the show’s newest sponsors in perfect 50s style harmony. Can you say “Brylcreem?!”
L.A. Examiner’s Ron Irwin says I Love Lucy: Live on Stage is “an absolutely brilliant and utterly engaging tribute to that iconic television show!”
TV Guide’s William Keck calls it “the most entertaining stage production I’ve seen in years – including Broadway!”
The truth is in the title – whether young or old, everybody really does Love Lucy! More information.
