LA Theatre Works: Lucy Loves Desi—A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom
About the event
Playwright Gregg Oppenheimer—son of I Love Lucy creator Jess Oppenheimer—spins the hilarious true story behind America’s beloved TV comedy. Oppenheimer spins this witty, fast-paced tale of Lucy and Desi’s battle with CBS over the pioneering ideas that changed the face of TV forever.
Lucy Loves Desi—A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom tells these stories, and more, with as much heart and humor as an episode of I Love Lucy itself. This crowd-pleasing show, written for L.A. Theatre Works, played to sold-out crowds during its world premiere run at the James Bridges Theater in Los Angeles during 2018.
