Lucille Ball was the queen of American comedy for decades a star in I Love Lucy – the most popular sitcom in American history.
Now Sutherland Shire audiences have the opportunity to see the Everybody Loves Lucy stage show at Sutherland Entertainment Centre on Saturday 1 July at 8pm.
The wacky, fearless and totally endearing Lucy broke the mould for the way women were allowed to behave on TV. Lucy was joined every step of the way by her real-life and on-screen husband Desi Arnaz. Together they defied conventions and expectations and ensured total control by creating their own studio.
“I’m sure everyone remembers seeing at least part of an I Love Lucy episode. This cabaret-style show is a treat for audiences both young and old and provides the chance to re-live some of the hilarious moments that the show and its stars created,” said Sutherland Shire Mayor, Carmelo Pesce.
Generations of fans love Lucy Ricardo for her impulsive, foolhardy and child-like charm. However the producer of I Love Lucy once said, “Lucille Ball is about as different from Lucy Ricardo as anyone could possibly be”. She was a dedicated professional whose seemingly effortless comedy was a result of rigorous attention to detail and fanatical rehearsing.
Brimming with Lucille Ball’s irrepressible spirit, Luckiest Productions present a tribute to a true trail-blazer. Everybody Loves Lucy is written by Elise McCann and Richard Carroll; directed by Helen Dallimore; choreographed by Christopher Horsey; dramaturge by Merridy Eastman and stars critically acclaimed stage star Jayde Westaby as Lucy.
Tickets available on 9521 8888 or at suthentcent.com.au. In show cabaret dining is also available.
