Lucy Loves Desi - L.A. Theatre Works

2022-2023 National Performance Season
The Arts Center at Iowa Western
Thursday, Feb 9, 2023 at 7:30 PM (CT)

Lucy Loves Desi: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom is the hilarious and true story behind one of America’s most beloved TV comedies. Lucille Ball paved the way for many of today’s top comediennes, while forcing Hollywood to begin dealing with the rising power and influence of women artists, both on-screen and behind the scenes. Playwright Gregg Oppenheimer – son of I Love Lucy creator Jess Oppenheimer – spins this witty, fast-paced tale of Lucy and Desi’s battles with CBS over the pioneering ideas that changed the face of television forever. From casting her real-life husband, Cuban-born Desi Arnaz, to insisting that the show be filmed in Hollywood, where she wanted to raise her family, to incorporating her real-life pregnancy into the show, Lucy left her impression on the television industry.

L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) has been the foremost radio theater company in the United States for four decades. LATW is broadcast weekly in America on public radio stations and programs are aired internationally on the BBC, CBC, and many other English language networks.
