‘Lucy Loves Desi: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom’ | February 11-12 | Polsky Theatre | The hilarious, true story behind one of America’s most beloved TV comedies.
Playwright Gregg Oppenheimer, son of “I Love Lucy” creator Jess Oppenheimer, spins this fast-paced, witty tale of Lucy and Desi’s battles with CBS over the pioneering ideas that changed the face of television forever.
For one, Lucy insisted Desi Arnaz, her Cuban-born bandleader husband, be her TV co-star instead of the “All-American” leading man preferred by the network. Additionally, the couple wanted the show filmed in Hollywood, where they planned to raise a family, not broadcast
