Stage Review

Why See I Loved Lucy?

TV's Lucy as you've never seen her before

First premiering at the Jermyn Street Theatre in 2016, Lee Tannem's touching comedy about his 10-year friendship with the iconic American TV star Lucille Ball makes the jump to the West End this July. The star behind TV's I Love Lucy was an enigmatic figure behind the scenes, at once wielding extraordinary power for the time at the TV studios, but also a fiercely private individual at home; Tannen's friendship with her for the last decade of her life paints an extraordinary portrait of a woman who sought the quiet life, and an engaging game of backgammon with her closest friend.

Stage legend Sandra Dickinson (Singin' In The Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Not About Nightingalesand Orpheus Descending) plays the ageing Lucille, whilst Tannen is played by Broadway regular Matthew Scott (An American in Paris, Sondheim On Sondheim) in his London stage debut. Directed by Antony Biggs, this sweet biographic play plays at the Arts Theatre for a limited time only!
