Lucy Loves Desi


Lucy Loves Desi: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom tells the hilariously true behind-the-scenes story of I Love Lucy. Playwright Gregg Oppenheimer – son of the show’s creator Jess Oppenheimer – spins this witty tale of Lucy and Desi’s battles with CBS, from who would play Lucy’s husband to whether Lucy could really be seen pregnant on TV. With their daughter, Lucie Arnaz, serving as advisor, Oppenheimer’s comedy brings as much heart and humor to the stage as an episode of I Love Lucy itself.
