"The brand new hit musical stage show adapted from the long-running, beloved television program."

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 14, 2013

Live Nation today announced I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE, the brand new hit musical stage show adapted from the long-running, beloved television program, starring Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel: America's favorite foursome, in Washington D.C. for the very first time at the Warner Theatre (513 13th Street NW) beginning on Saturday, June 1 — Friday, June, 14, 2013. A full schedule of performances is listed below.

Imagine stepping back in time and into the Desilu Playhouse soundstage! It's 1952 and you are a member of the studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and familiar "I Love Lucy" episodes. A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950s hi-fidelity technology and this brand new thing called 'television.' The episodes begin and you witness firsthand the sidesplitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardos' New York apartment and the Cuban sounds of "The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra" at the famed Tropicana Nightclub. In between scenes? The Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles of the show's newest sponsors in perfect '50s style harmony. Can you say 'Brylcreem'?!

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE, under a license from CBS Consumer Products, premiered in Los Angeles 2011 to stellar reviews, prestigious awards and sold out crowds for its initial five-month run. According to John Soltes at HollywoodSoapbox.com, "One of the hardest LA tickets to snag is to I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE. If you're a fan of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel, this is a must-see experience."

LA Examiner's Ron Irwin says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is "an absolutely brilliant and utterly engaging tribute to that iconic television show."

TV Guide's William Keck says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is "the most entertaining stage production I've seen in years — including Broadway!" Examiner.com adds, "… I frankly cannot remember any performance in any venue in recent time that caused me to laugh so long and so hard. But it also clearly told the story and paid proper homage to the original 'I Love Lucy®.' When it ended I was filled with warmth and joy…"

It seems the truth is in the title. Whether young or old, EVERYBODY really does LOVE LUCY!

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is produced by Stephen Kahn (Executive Producer), David George (Executive Producer) , Allan Williams (Executive Producer) and Kim Flagg (Co-Adaptor/Producer) , Hyra George (Producer), Dede Harris (Producer), Sharon Karmazin (Producer), and David Carpenter (Associate Producer). Staged, directed and adapted for the stage by Rick Sparks,

Damn! What a shame it's not there in July - I'll be in Virginia and will be heading out to Washington while we're there. Would have loved it!

It's in NJ in July? Yay! May catch it there!

Was a great show - of course the original cast are irreplaceable but I imagine the live experience will be great fun.

I saw it in LA a couple years ago and it was great fun. The entire experience is an attempt to get you the audience member at an actual filming of an "I Love Lucy" episode. The show really starts the second you walk into the room...not just when the lights go up. There are actors mingling with the audience, talking and interacting, as if it's 1955. From the "camera men" to the MC, to the singers---it's a great all around experience to what it'd be like to have seen an actual filming of this legendary show. Immense fun for anyone who was a fan.
