I Love Lucy: Live on Stage
Witness the classic antics of America's favorite ditzy redhead and her Cuban crooner hubby as the beloved '50s sitcom I Love Lucy is transformed into a live stage show. Step back in time onto the Desilu soundstage, where a charming host will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the latest hi-fi technology that makes this new thing called "television" possible. Then, the show starts, with Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel up to their usual hilarious misadventures in the familiar cozy surroundings of their New York apartment building and the famed Tropicana Nightclub, where The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra delights with "Babalu" and other Cuban dance numbers. In between scenes, the Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles from the show's newest sponsors (Brylcreem, anyone?) in perfect '50s-style harmony. This is your chance to be a member of the studio audience at the taping of two classic I Love Lucy episodes -- "The Benefit" (Lucy agrees to get Ricky to perform at a benefit for her women's club, as long as she's the star of the show) and "Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined" (drops from the eye doctor make Lucy's vision blurry just as she's about to audition for a movie role). Don't miss the show that TV Guide calls "the most entertaining stage production ... in years -- including Broadway" when it comes to Atlanta's Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
