EVERYBODY LOVES LUCY
July 7th at 7:30pm
July 8th at 2pm and 7:30pm
A fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into the television icon, Lucille Ball. Brimming with Lucille Ball's irrepressible spirit, acclaimed West End performer Jayde Westaby (Chicago, The Rocky Horror Show), with Musical Director (and sometimes Desi!) Steven Kreamer star in this hilarious cabaret tribute to a true trail-blazer.
The production will have excellent traction as Cate Blanche will be playing the role of Lucille Ball in a Hollywood produced film on the iconic star's life, so perfect timing for us.
After years paying her dues in B-movies, Lucille Ball won the public's hearts and reigned supreme as television's biggest star in I Love Lucy – one of the most popular sitcoms in American history.
Wacky, fearless, and totally endearing, Lucy broke the mould for the way women were allowed to behave on screen. But beneath the seemingly ditzy veneer of a 1950s housewife was an ambitious and savvy businesswoman whose success owed little to luck.
As the producer of I Love Lucy once said, "Lucille Ball is about as different from Lucy Ricardo as anyone could possibly be."
"Everybody Loves Lucy is equal parts amusing and bittersweet. A fitting tribute to the paradox that was Lucille Ball."
Sarrah Le Marquand, The Daily Telegraph
"The show is a light, bright, treat. It's a really strong marriage of both idea and laughs, and it's evidence of the tight, impressive writing in the piece."
Cassie Tongue, Aussie Theatre
"Everybody Loves Lucy is splendidly written, snappy and lean, taking us on her journey in character, without any cheesy cabaret narrative bits. Helen Dallimore's deft, clean direction ensures a light, bright style, with
splendid variation of pace, on the simplest of settings."
Neil Litchfield, Stage Whispers
