I Love Lucy: Live on Stage Coming to the Hanover Theatre
Tuesday, March 03, 2015
Thea Brooks and Euriamis Losada lead the company as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, with Kevin Remington and Lori Hammel playing Fred and Ethel Mertz, the Ricardo’s loveable landlords and sidekicks. The cast also includes Sara Jayne Blackmore, Sarah Elizabeth Combs, Gregory Franklin, Jody Madaras, Carlos Martin, Denise Moses, Cindy Sciacca, Kami Seymour, Richard Strimer and Mark Christopher Tracy.
An “out-of-body experience for ‘Lucy’ fans” according to Showbiz Chicago, I LOVE LUCY: LIVE ON STAGE takes audience members back to 1952 as members of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience where they await the filming of two I Love Lucy episodes, “The Benefit” and “Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined.” A host entertains and lets the crowd in on the behind-the-scenes filming process of the program.
The iconic sitcom I Love Lucy originally aired on CBS from 1951 – 1957 for a total of six seasons and 179 episodes and is widely considered to be one of the most popular programs in the history of television.
In September 2012, I Love Lucy was named the “Best TV Show Of All Time” and the “Greatest TV Comedy” by People Magazine and ABC’s 20/20 special "Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time."
I Love Lucy: Live on Stage had its world premiere in Los Angeles at the Greenway Court Theatre from October 2011 – February 2012. A subsequent Chicago production was launched that played two engagements at the Broadway Playhouse, September 2012 – March 2013. The 2013-2014 national tour visited cities including Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia, Nashville and Costa Mesa.
Tickets to I Love Lucy: Live on Stage are $32, $42, $52 and $62 with a 10% discount available to members of The Hanover Theatre, groups of 10 and Woo Card holders.
