Lee Tannen’s personal, funny and bittersweet play I Loved Lucy, about his 10-year relationship with TV comedy legend Lucille Ball, is to transfer to London’s Arts Theatre this summer.
Playing from Wednesday 19 July, I Loved Lucy is a personal portrait of an iconic comedic entertainer whose public face is all too well known. Based on his best selling memoir, Tannen explroes what Lucille Ball was really like out of the spotlight, and how she chose to live out the end of her life.
The critically acclaimed Sandra Dickinson (recent West End credits including Singin’ In The Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire) returns as Lucy, with Broadway leading man Matthew Scott (An American In Paris and Jersey Boys on Broadway) making his London debut as Lee. The show is directed by Anthony Biggs.
Following an acclaimed UK premiere at Jermyn Street Theatre in 2016, where it had a second run due to overwhelming public demand, I Loved Lucy transfers for a strictly limited 7-week season.
