I Love Lucy Live on Stage is the brand-new hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history! It’s 1952 and you are a member of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I Love Lucy episodes. A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process of this brand new thing called “television,” the Crystaltone Singers perform advertising jingles in perfect 50s style harmony and the sidesplitting antics of America’s favorite foursome – Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel – are presented live on stage and in color for the very first time! It’s a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience TV Guide’s William Keck calls “the most entertaining stage production I’ve seen in years – including Broadway!” The truth is in the title – whether young or old, everybody really does love Lucy!

For a night of nostalgia and plain old fun, see the stage production of “I Love Lucy” at the Aronoff. The costumes are bright, the dresses swish and twirl, the 50’s era sets are well done. Thea Brooks, as Lucy, has her mannerisms down pat; Euriamis Losada, as Ricky, has a fantastic voice. He exudes Ricky Ricardo. When he says “Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do,” he brings down the house. All four actors in the lead roles must have studied hard to know so well how to speak and move so much like the original characters.
Anyone over 60 will recall the tunes of the times and find themselves singing along to the commercial jingles. Those younger have enjoyed the humor of the comedy show itself in reruns, and will get an introduction to what live commercials were like back in the day. The “Crystaltone Singers” harmony is spot on.
