Witness all the antics of America's favorite dizzy redhead and her Cuban crooner hubby as beloved '50s sitcom I Love Lucy is transformed into a live musical. 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, and Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel are up to their hilarious antics in the familiar cozy surroundings of their New York apartment building and at 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 in 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 have a jitterbug audition for a movie role).

Highly enjoyed their tightrope-walking construction worker and the drum-playing juggler along with the dance-popping street man. I found the backdrops and activity on the stage to be too busy, making it difficult to focus on any one thing. I've seen Cirque de Soleil and was hoping this show would compare to it, but it falls far short.

Journey with fascination into the depths of a city that ignites with illumination when Cirque Dreams’ imagination, suspense and theatrical innovation turns everyday ordinary into bright and extraordinary.
Audiences of all ages will marvel as city dwellers reinvent familiar objects, balance on wires, leap tall buildings and redefine the risks of flight in a story filled with astounding occurrences. One of a kind artists populate the streets of this magical metropolis and breathe energy into its landscape with urban acrobatics and never before seen phenomenal thrills of disbelief. Cirque Dreams’ critically acclaimed dazzling costumes come alive to the sounds of jazz, ballroom, pop and more in this original score.
