For those lucky enough to catch I Love Lucy on Nick at Nite back in the day, you're well acquainted with the antics of Lucy, a quirky redhead desperate for stardom. Her handsome husband Ricky Ricardo, the Cuban bandleader and crooner, was the unfortunate soundboard for all of Lucy's harebrained attempts at fame.
A beloved TV show through much of the 1950s, I Love Lucy remains a popular syndicate to this day, and one credited for being America's first televised depiction of an interracial couple.
I Love Lucy Live on Stage is a chance to relive the Cuban sounds of the Ricky Ricardo Orchestra at the Tropicana nightclub and enjoy the grumblings of BFF neighbors Fred and Ethel. The audience goes inside the filming of two Lucy episodes, with the Crystaltone Singers performing live advertising jingles of the show's sponsors in '50s-style harmony between scenes.
