LUCILLE Ball fans are in for a treat when Luckiest Productions presents Everybody Loves Lucy..

Brimming with Lucille Ball’s irrepressible spirit, Everybody Loves Lucy is a tribute to a true trail-blazer, the Queen of American comedy for decades.

As television’s biggest star in I Love Lucy – the most popular sitcom in American history – 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.

Lucy and Desi held up a fun-house mirror to every marriage in America, exaggerating and making amusing every idiosyncrasy of married life. But as Lucy’s popularity thrived, her relationship with Desi suffered both professionally and privately.

Generations of fans loved Lucy Ricardo for her impulsive, foolhardy and child-like charm – but the producer of I Love Lucy once said “Lucille Ball is about as different from Lucy Ricardo as anyone could possibly be.”

Instead, she was a dedicated professional whose seemingly effortless comedy was a result of rigorous attention to detail and fanatical rehearsing.

This cabaret-style show is a treat for audiences young and old.
