Queensland will fall in love with Lucy all over again as Everybody Loves Lucy brings the larger-than-life character from one of America’s most popular sitcoms to the stage 24-27 February 2015 at (QPAC).

 

Lucille Ball was the Queen of American comedy for decades. Her signature role in I Love Lucy saw her win the public’s hearts and reign supreme as television’s biggest star.

 

Now, see the wacky, fearless, and totally endearing Lucy come to life on QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre stage in this superbly-written intimate cabaret that has been described as equal parts hilarious and thought-provoking.

 

Brimming with Lucille Ball’s irrepressible spirit, acclaimed Australian theatre star
Elise McCann (Mamma Mia, South Pacific) presents a tribute to a true trail-blazer, joined by musical director (and sometime ‘Desi’) Nigel Ubrihien.

 

Lucille Ball broke the mould for the way women were allowed to behave on TV. Joined by her real-life and on-screen husband Desi Arnaz, she 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.

 

Her own marriage may have fallen apart, but Lucille’s brave and outrageous depiction of married life saw her credited with saving the marriages of millions of Americans.

 

Intelligent and well-executed, with a generous serving of laughs, Everybody Loves Lucy is one that is not-to-be missed for the trail-blazer inside all of us. Book here.
