Quotes & Highlights
“Suzanne’s likeness to Lucille is uncanny. She has caught all her mannerisms, her voice, and even her appearance. It’s sort of spooky!” —Madelyn Pugh Davis, original “I Love Lucy” co-creator and writer
Desilu-approved Lucille Ball official impersonator Suzanne LaRusch was awarded 4th runner-up on ABC’s “The Next Best Thing,” and finished as the highest ranked woman celebrity impersonator in the nationwide search competition. She is kicking off her U.S. tour of An Evening with Lucille Ball by doing one special performance in the Los Angeles area at The Grove Theatre.
Using a Q&A forum, An Evening with Lucille Ball features Lucy reminiscing as well as addressing the most asked questions by Lucy fans.
Act One reveals a 1960 Lucy as her popular television show “I Love Lucy” has come to an end after its nine-year run—along with her 20-year marriage to famous Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz. Expecting to only be answering questions and taking photos, she learns the awaiting audience is expecting a comedy performance from “The Great Lucille Ball.” Not wanting to disappoint her fans, she quickly improvises by adding some “Lucy” type antics to the lineup.
Act Two takes place in 1974. As Lucy readies for the opening of her picture “Mame,” she realizes she has somehow been booked in the same venue and situation as 14 years prior, and decides to again come up with things the fans would enjoy from “Lucy.”
