Most of us remember “I Love Lucy,” whether from watching it ourselves or from reruns. “I Love Lucy” is still shown every day and is syndicated in many languages across the globe. And now, beginning July 3 at Harrah’s Resort, you can relive the antics of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel when “I Love Lucy® Live On Stage” makes its Atlantic City premier.
“I Love Lucy” debuted on October 15, 1951 and quickly became a Monday-night staple on CBS. The show went through several incarnations before disappearing into the television classics vault in 1957. “I Love Lucy” has been called the most beloved television sitcom ever. In fact, “I Love Lucy” still brings in $20 million per year, over 55 years since it went off the air.
“I Love Lucy® Live On Stage” gives you all the thrills of sitting in a television audience in the 50s, when TV was live and anything could and did happen. Here’s the scenario.
“It’s 1952 and you are a member of the studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I LOVE LUCY® episodes. Imagine stepping back in time onto the Desilu Playhouse soundstage where a charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950s hi-fidelity technology and this brand-new thing called television. The episodes begin and you witness, firsthand, the side-splitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardo’s New York apartment and thrill to the Cuban sounds of The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra at the famed Tropicana Nightclub. In between scenes, the Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles of the show’s newest sponsors in perfect 50s style harmony. Can you say Brylcreem?!”
