Who doesn’t love Lucy? Better yet, who doesn’t love Lucy live? Broadway In Chicago presents, I Love Lucy Live On Stage adopted from the most beloved program in television history. You’ll be taken back to 1952 and see America’s favorite characters – Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel – live and in color onstage!
Members of the audience will experience a live show featuring the episodes “The Benefit” and “Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined” from the comedic series. A charming host will also showcase the behind the scenes filming process of “television”. Members of the Crystaltone Singers will keep the audience engaged by performing advertised jingles in the perfect ’50s rock style. It will be just like watching from home – but better!
I Love Lucy Live On Stage is playing at the Bank of America Theatre, located at 18 W Monroe St., from December 9 to 14. Ticket prices and show times can be viewed here, and more information about the production can be viewed here. Lucy fans, don’t miss out on this experience!
The production Rise of the Real Man, which is written and produced by Antwan L. Johnson, will be performed at the Gorilla Tango Theater. The production follows the main characters D (Dwayne Jackson) and Crystal, African Americans in their late 20s, as they observe and play a role in the struggles of a particular neighborhood. It also goes into Dwayne confronting issues in his own community, the North Lawndale area, a neighborhood that accurately portrays many other unsettled communities located in Chicago. If you wish to experience a unique and intriguing production that demonstrates the variety of disturbances in the city of Chicago, this is the performance for you!
The performance will take place on Friday, December 5 at 7:30 PM and Saturday, December 6 at 4:30 PM.
