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).

This frantic backstage comedy is cleverly staged to allow you three versions of the same show: Act I is the final rehearsal; Act II is the opening performance from backstage; Act III is a performance weeks later from out front. Every act presents its own set of crazy problems for the actors and hapless director to overcome so that the show can "go on." As the fighting among the cast members becomes more twisted, everything "on stage'' begins to unravel.
