I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is the brand new hit musical stage show adapted from the longest running and most beloved television program in history! Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel: America’s favorite foursome is LIVE ON STAGE and in color for the VERY FIRST TIME!
Imagine stepping back in time and into the Desilu Playhouse soundstage! 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. A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950’s 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 50’s style harmony. Can you say ‘Brylcreem’?!
LA Examiner’s Ron Irwin says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is, “an absolutely brilliant and utterly engaging tribute to that iconic television show.”
I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE premiered in Los Angeles 2011 to stellar reviews, prestigious awards, and sold-out crowds for its initial 5 month run. According to John Soltes at HollwoodSoapbox.com: “One of the hardest tickets to snag is to I LOVE LUCY LIVE ON STAGE. If you’re a fan of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel, this is a must-see experience.”
TV Guide’s William Keck says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is, “the most entertaining stage production I’ve seen in years – including Broadway!!!” Examiner.com adds, “…I frankly cannot remember any performance in any venue in recent time that caused me to laugh so long and so hard. But it also clearly told the story and paid proper homage to the original I Love Lucy. When is ended I was filled with warmth and joy…”
It seems that the truth is in the title. Whether young or old, EVERYBODY really does LOVE LUCY!
