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 get up to their side-splitting 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 will 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 is 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).

My husband and I attended the Splendor when we visited Boston. It was a very nice venue. I noticed some people were surprised about the closeness to the actors and actresses. It was a good play, a little too long though. Great acting. Particularly, Alexandria Danielle King, Hannah Cranton, Becca Lewis, Molly Kimmerling, Obehi Janice and Danny Mourino and James Milord. It was an interesting story line. It remind me of my Irish family growing up. Great job to all! Will definitely recommend it.

Always an interesting experience when you go to interactive theatre. The first part of the play was a little jumpy, however it all gathered speed in the 2nd half and was delivered very nicely. All so true human fragility, weakness and selfishness.
