Review from June

This play was so much fun. If you are looking for a fun night out then take yourselves (and your kids too...) to see this very family friendly show. We all laughed so much, enjoyed the singing and the trip down memory lane.

Description

Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel: America’s favorite foursome in I Love Lucy® Live on Stage, a musical comedy tribute to one of the most popular television shows. 

Travel back to the 1950s and the Desilu Studios where Rick Sparks directs the “filming” of two episodes of the iconic and beloved sitcom__, complete with a television studio host and vintage-style live musical commercials. In addition to the classic comedy that takes place in Lucy and Ricky Ricardo’s New York apartment, musical director Wayne Moore conducts The __Ricky Ricardo Orchestra live from the “Tropicana Nightclub.”

Sirena Irwin (previously directed by Sparks in Where’s My Money?), stars as Lucy Ricardo; Bill Mendieta (a member of L.A.’s prestigious Antaeus Company) is Ricky Ricardo; Bill Chott (a writer/performer on __The Dana Carvey Show __and __Saturday Night Live __cartoons with Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell) plays Fred Mertz; and Lisa Joffrey (the Rick Sparks-directed Dead Bride Running) is Ethel Mertz. Also featured in the cast, playing multiple roles, are Noel Britton, Tom Christensen, Steven Connor, Gregory Franklin, Ed Martin, Denise Moses, Cindy Sciacca, Amy Tolsky, Gina Torrecilla and Mark Christopher Tracy.

“There will never be another television character like Lucy Ricardo,” acknowledges Sparks. “We recognize that there was only one original cast, so we’re not going to attempt any impersonation of their immense talents. Our task is to send a valentine to the unforgettable residents of 623 E 68th Street, as well as to the fresh style and commercial awakening of early 1950s television. Our plan is to honor and celebrate this iconic show, and that experience will begin the moment audiences step onto the sidewalk in front of the theater.”
